The one off B.5 cockpit preserved at the Museum of Flight. It broke the Trans-Atlantic out and back record on 26th August 1952 with a time of 10 hours and 3½ minutes. Afterwards, the rest of the aircraft was converted to a B(I)8.
This is WJ874 painted as VN799, the Canberra prototype, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canberra's first flight on 13 May 1949. Ten years earlier two other aircraft, WT478 and WJ877, had been painted in these same markings to celebrate the type's 40th anniversary.
This is the former WJ874, which made its last operational flight on 1 Sep 2005 and was then flown from Marham to Coventry on 9 Nov 2005 on delivery. Air Atlantique Classic Flight painted it in these markings as VN799, the Canberra prototype. Back in 1999 it had also been painted in those same markings, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canberra's first flight on 13 May 1949. In 1989 WT478 and WJ877 also flew in these markings for the 40th anniversary. The circled "P" is not a code but indicated a Prototype aircraft. In July 2015 the aircaft moved on to the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre.
Acquired by Air Atlantique Classic Flight in Mar 2000 and based at Coventry. It suffered an engine failure in 2007 and has been grounded ever since. In 2016 this Canberra was acquired by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, and trucked to Doncaster for storage. It was still there by 2019. They aim to get it back in the air.
This Canberra arrived here in 1990, when the museum was still named the Vallance By-Ways Collection. Following the death in Jan 2013 of the museum's owner Peter Vallance, some exhibits went to other museums and collections. In January 2016 this Canberra moved on to the RAF Laarbruch Museum in Weeze, Germany.
