Photo Comment

Taken on charge by the RAF in 1.54 as WE191, this Canberra went back to BAe in 2.78 to be prepared for the Indian AF, but was never delivered. The fuselage is now preserved at the Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum, while the starboard wing was fitted to Canberra T.17 WH665 dumped at Filton in 1988 (was due to be sunk as a diving wreck). Others in this view from left are T.4 WT488 (b/u Dunsfold 99), TT.18 WJ721 (nose pres. Scotland) and probably TT.18 WE122 (to FRADU, nose in Suffolk) at right
