    TRANSCRIPT: "Well, this is the first Canberra for the Argentinean contract and these Canberras are completely rebuilt and sent out as new."



    "The Canberra made its first flight on Friday, 13th May, 1949, twenty-one years ago, and it was snow in public for the first time that year at Farnborough." since that time. Canberra held many height and distance records and was the first....



    "In May, 1951, it became the R.A.F.'s first jet bomber when it was introduced to 101 Squadron at Binbrook and at that time it doubled the performance of the R.A.F. by replacing the Lincoln bombers at 300 m.p.h. with the 600 m.p.h. plus of the Canberra."



    "It was later built for the United States Air Force and has been in service with 17 other countries....."



    since that time. Canberras held many height and distance records and was the first....



    aeroplane to reach 70,000 ft. in the early 1950's.



    It was also the first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic twice in one day.



    "It was used as a test bed for very high altitude research with a rocket motor, the Napier Scorpion...."



    "and it's been used throughout the world in the roles of long range photo reconnaissance, bombing and training."



    "The Canberra was developed here at Warton through a very large number of variants and has been built ever since 1945 at Salmsbury and it has led to other programmes.... such as the very successful Lightning, supersonic fighter,..."



    "the ABC 167 and..."



    "Jet Provost Trainers..."



    "and now, of course, the Jaguar."



    "In the future there will be the M.R.C.A. and in the meantime the Canberra still goes on."



    "So this makes twenty-one years of Canberra development, production and sales and there's no signs yet abating interest from the customers round the world. Maybe it'll go on for another twenty-one years."
