Canberras with Red Beard

8 posts in this topic

Last Months Aeroplane had a couple of dark pictures of Canberras with what looked like a Red Beard semi submerged in the bomb bay.

Like to add this to my RAF bombers line up.

Anyone got a better picture or drawing of the Red Beard mated to the Canberra?

Thanks

Bill

I'll see your Canberra with a Red Beard and raise you an Air Force One with Orange Hair. (Sorry. Couldn't resist!)

Excellent pic John, is that how it was carried in flight, semi recessed?

Some rough old paint work on that Canberra!

Thanks James the paint is very scruffy, it's just a temporary finnish for the trials,  I've not seen any photos of her in flight, but from what I know this is how the installation was planned to be, They were testing airflow over the shape by releasing dye into the airflow, so I guess she did fly with it?
