Canberra B.2 WH725 at Duxford, 4th June 2019; Damien Burke

First flown in May 1953, WT725 entered service first with 15 Sqn at RAF Coningsby and later transferred to 50 Sqn at RAF Binbrook, moving to RAF Upwood with the squadron when they switched stations.

She was eventually struck off charge in 1972 and moved to the then-Imperial War Museum store at Duxford. She has been refurbished in her 50 Sqn guise and is now on permanent static display at Duxford - for some years outside, but now undercover, dangling from the roof in the Airspace hangar.
