I suppose I should start by saying I’m aware of the official MoD line “There’s nothing to see here” with respect to No.39 Squadrons involvement in the Falklands war, however it seems to be a fascinating story and mention of this exercise in Roland Whites excellent ‘Harrier 809’ book has peaked my interest. I’ve also just read a good article in the Key.aero forum which I’ll link here. Now googling all sorts of “Canberra, Chile, Falklands” criteria has turned up two artist impressions. It would appear that no ‘official’ photos exist of these deployed Canberra’s however I was just wondering if these drawings look to be a plausible (and happy to call it) What-if scheme? I also believe there was an article in the old Warplane Magazine Part series (#36), so if anyone has this magazine and is able to supply a scanned copy of this article, it would be gratefully appreciated. Any additional information that might assist a possible build would also be a real bonus. Here are the two images in question. All comments most welcomed. Cheers and regards.. Dave
Greetings all Canberra fans. I’m trying to tie up some Canberra PR.9 serials to certain dates they were in service with the Malta based No. 13 & 39 Squadrons. Does anyone know a website link that lists each of the 23 PR.9 serials and their unit histories? Ideally I’m looking for what serial was on strength with each unit for the year 1970, however an overall in-service historical list would also be good to have. Once known this will help me model a Matchbox kit to a hopeful accurate(ish) conclusion. Cheers and thanks for looking.. Dave
