East Anglia Books


By Ken Delve and John Sheehan

This book details the RAF squadrons that operated the Canberra jet between 1951 and 2006. Each entry lists aircraft variants, bases, Commanding Officers, and CAT 5 losses and is supported by photographs of people and aircraft. As the RAF's first Cold War jet bomber, the Canberra played an important role in transitioning Bomber Command from the era of piston bombers to high-speed high-level jets. The Canberra though was far more, with global roles with the RAF in reconnaissance, interdiction and in a variety of trials and support roles.
