RAAF Museum Strike/Recce Hangar at Point Cook, Victoria. The GAF (English Electric) Canberra Mk.20, McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II and General Dynamics F-111G Aardvark (a name that was never really used in the RAAF as they were affectionately known as “Pig“) make for an impressive display of former RAAF aircraft (photos taken during my February 2016 visit to the museum).
GAF (English Electric) Canberra
The RAAF ordered 48 English Electric Canberra bombers in 1950. These were built by the Government Aircraft Factory (GAF) with the first delivered in 1953 and went on to operate with No.2 Squadron (1953), No. 6 Squadron (1955) and No.1 Squadron (1958). 5 were converted to a Mk.21 trainer variant in 1958-1959.
