Photo Comment

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.
