Canberra B.62 B-102 at Farnborough, 12th September 1970; Chris England

Built by the English Electric Co in 1953, this B.2 was initially taken onto the inventory of the RAF Flying College. It also flew for a while with the College of Air Warfare before entering squadron service with 85 Sqd (who were probably at RAF West Raynham at the time). It next joined 360 Sqd at RAF Watton until they parted with their B.2s in mid 1967. WJ713 was most likely put into storage (RAF St Athan?) before eventually, on 23 February 1968, it was sold to BAC . At BAC, this B.2 was converted to B.62 configuration for Argentina. It was delivered to FUERZA AEREA ARGENTINA (1 Sqd) on 17 November 1970 as B-102.

After retirement, B-102 was placed on display next to the railway station in Olivia City.
