Inside the Canberra T.17, at one time this variant was highly classified. Very small space for a crew of three

Sometimes it is the only why in which the private owner can have their own aircraft. My friend Darren Green who owns WH779 the Canberra PR.7 was been working on it for the past 8 years, the inside looks like the aircraft is ready to take off. I hate to think what it has cost him.
The gentleman who owns the Canberra PR.9 got free when he purchased the trailer it was on. The thing about this PR.9 it was never fitted to an airframe or given an RAF serial number. It was used by the company for testing, so in fact it is very rare.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Must of them are fully complete with their ejector seats and of the owners allow you to sit in them.
