RAAF English Electric Canberra B.2 cockpit, pt 1
December 14, 2015 in Aviation
Have not given up the black cockpits of British aircrafts yet. This time it´s the EE Canberra B.2 bomber at the Lincoln Nitschke Aviation Collection in Greenock, South Australia. Interesting museum with all sorts of little parts and gadgets from an era gone by. Will make a separate article on this museum a bit later. I have had some peeks and crawls into a few other Canberra cockpits before but never cease to be surprised of how difficult it must have been to get into the nose compartment in full flight suit and all. A few details regarding the museum you´ll find here http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/World/Oceania/Australia/Greenock/Lincoln_Nitschke_Aviation_Collection.htm More details re WH 700 is to be found here http://www.adf-serials.com.au/2a84b.htm
For some reason I can only attach 6 photos, more in part 2.
