THE B-57 CANBERRA (Color, 1986, 45 Minutes)
Archival color film chronicling the history of the first of the jet tactical bombers and the last of the tactical bombers of any type, from its inception and design through its early testing and manufacture to its employment in the skies of the world's air forces to serve in numerous military theaters of operation in the tactical bomber, reconnaissance and electronic warfare roles, as well as in civilian service as a research and test aircraft for NASA (Australian Version).
THE B-57 CANBERRA (Color, 1989, 45 Minutes)
American English version of the above.
The Martin B-57 Canberra is an American-built, twin-engined tactical bomber and reconnaissance aircraft that entered service with the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1953. The B-57 is a license-built version by the Glenn L. Martin Company of the British English Electric Canberra, a British first-generation, jet-powered medium bomber developed by English Electric in response to a 1944 Air Ministry requirement for a successor to the legendary wartime de Havilland Mosquito fast bomber. Initial Martin-built models were virtually identical to their British-built twinjet counterparts; Martin later modified the design to incorporate larger quantities of US-sourced components and produced the aircraft in several different variants. The B-57 Canberra holds the distinction of being the first jet bomber in U.S. service to drop bombs during combat. The Canberra was used extensively during the Vietnam War in a bombing capacity; dedicated versions of the type were also produced and served as high-altitude aerial reconnaissance platforms (the Martin RB-57D Canberra), and as electronic warfare aircraft. The B-57 Canberra was also sold to export customers abroad; further combat use was seen by the Pakistani Air Force during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. In 1983, the USAF opted to retire the type; the B-57 Canberra's retirement marked the ending of the era of the tactical bomber. The three remaining flightworthy WB-57Fs are technically assigned to the NASA Johnson Space Center, next to Ellington Field in Houston, as high-altitude scientific research aircraft, but have also been used for testing and electronic communications in the U.S. and Afghanistan.
