Military Wednesday - Martin B-57 Canberra

Wednesday, Aug 31 2011 by kjfitz
The Martin B-57 Canberra was a United States-built, twin jet engine light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, which entered service with the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1953. The B-57 was initially a version of the English Electric Canberra built under license. However, the Glenn L. Martin Company significantly modified the design and produced several unique variants. The world's last two remaining flight worthy WB-57s reside at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX as high altitude scientific research aircraft.
