English Electric Canberra B(i)8
B(I)8 CANBERRAS – No 3 Squadron at RAF Laarbruch
Listed here are all the B(I)8 Canberras (extract 3 Sqn) that were produced in the UK. The majority of these Canberras served with the RAF's Strike Squadrons in Germany from the mid 1950s until the early 1970s. Swapping of aircraft between the strike squadrons was fairly common so the various owners of each B(I)8 on the list are indicated by a green-filled cell in the particular squadron's column.
Where available, a link is provided from an aircraft's serial number to a photo and potted history in the B(I)8 Galleries.
B(I)8s which crashed are shown with their "comment" in RED
