|The B-57 Canberra served the U.S. Air Force for more than 25 years as a nuclear weapons platform, conventional weapons bomber, reconnaissance, tow target, weather, and electronic countermeasures aircraft as well as being the mainstay for other nations.
This web site is dedicated to the aircrews, maintenance and support personnel who knew the aircraft and were a part of its missions. It is a beginning with the hope that those who were a part of the Canberra story will add to the growth of this site by providing original photos, videos, sound, and anecdotes.
