wilky Another to add to the wish list.
I was in the Air Training Corp and was at R.A.A.F. base Edinburgh in 1982 and ARDU were still flying a Canberra. Very impressive start up with this old bird with a charge similar to a shot gun shell used to ignite the fuel.
Unfortunately we weren't allowed to get close to the ARDU aircraft.
I did finally get to check out the inside of a Canberra in '89 at the Chewing gum airfield museum

Nazid Kimmie Wilky, wow yes I've seen original footage of those start-up cartridges, huge plumes of smoke everywhere not exactly stealthy! Where is that museum? Check out this virtual tour inside one - very cramped!

wilky It's in Tallebudgera, Queensland.. Not far from the Gold Coast. It was a long time ago that they had the Canberra, not sure if they still do
