Canberra Tribute

Canberra Tribute by Michael Rondot

Operated by 17 airforces in more than 20 different variants, Canberras have been to war at Suez and in India, in Vietnam and the Falklands campaign, and in 1996 Canberra PR9s were engaged in operational reconnaissance flights over Bosnia and in other regions. It is widely and justifiably regarded as one of the greatest aircraft designs of all time.

The English Electric Canberra first flew on Friday 13 May 1949 when its performance created a sensation. Such was the quality of the original design that in May 1951, when the first B2 Canberras entered service with No 101 Squadron at RAF Binbrook they could out manoeuvre all the fighters of the period and fly with impunity more than 10,000 feet above them.

Operated by 17 airforces in more than 20 different variants, Canberras have been to war at Suez and in India, in Vietnam and the Falklands campaign, and in 1996 Canberra PR9s were engaged in operational reconnaissance flights over Bosnia and in other regions. It is widely and justifiably regarded as one of the greatest aircraft designs of all time.

Michael Rondot's oil painting features two variants in typical flying weather, a Canberra B2 in brilliant sunshine taking off from a rain-soaked runway, with a PR9 in the background set against a backdrop of stormclouds and rain. The signed and numbered prints are beautifully produced on imported heavyweight art paper to match others in the CLASSIC COMBAT AIRCRAFT series.

Taken from a single limited edition of 650, numbered and stamped with the Collectair seal and individually signed by Michael Rondot. A numbered and signed certificate is issued with every print to guarantee the total edition size and authenticity.
