Canberra Mk 21


Recommended Posts

Anyone has photos of the RAAF Canberra Mk 21 cockpit?

Any details of what converting a MK20 to 21 entailed?

Essentially they are the same as the very early RAF T.4's, no ejection seats for the instructor or student, the Nav. had a Mk.1CS. The external difference, this was confined basically to the repositioned pitot to the optical flat on the nose cap.

Thanks for the feedback. I’m doing an Airfix 1/48 B20. The serial they’ve got is A84-205. From research 205 was converted to Mk 21 in 1958-59 long before it was assigned to 1 (B) OCU.

I have been on your website. Fantastic resource! I came across it when I was doing a B(I)8 and have been using your site for reference since. Great job!

 

wrt the B 20 I may just use a different serial number as I really do want to hang the wingtip bomb racks.

I want the best of both worlds! The unique bomb rack configuration but something other than the green and grey.

I’ve decided on A84-215 around 1962. This aircraft was with 1 (B) OCU at that time in that paint scheme. In 1963 it got the first camo and later transferred to another squadron.
