Mahogany English Electric Canberra Wooden Model
The English Electric Canberra was designed as a direct replacement for the wartime de Havilland Mosquito and entered service with the RAF in 1951. It was the first British jet-powered bomber and had become the RAF's longest-serving aircraft by the time it was retired in 2006, having amassed 55 years of service.
During the 1950s, the Canberra could fly at a higher altitude than any other aircraft in the world. It set several world altitude records and also made the first non-stop unrefuelled transatlantic crossing by a jet aircraft. Avro built 75 Canberras in total at Woodford during the 1950s. The Canberra was exported to 16 countries and saw action in many conflicts including the Suez Crisis, Vietnam War, and Falklands War.
Handcrafted from quality mahogany with a high luster varnish, this is a stylised desk-top model of an English Electric Canberra, ideal for home or office.
