that was a great landing, considering the wheel came off on takeoff. awesome recovery, considering that the missing wheel must have been playing on your mind the whole flight.

Always have loved the canberra. I wrote a few years back about mine never being maidened but as of a few weeks ago she also flew. happy with her so far just still adjusting the COG and elevator as thats still very touchy.

Great plane and happy to see so many flights from her already.

Really a great model!
we did 45 misions
also we did the "Flying Tribute" , a flying with real noises (from real canberras), and real pilots, navigators, radar,controltower...and we recreate a real mision of this plane...

One picture, is from day that we flew over the real MK62 gate guardian in Parana city, where canberras had base, during the monument inauguration...a great honor
Thanks
