RAF: Canberra PR9 Aircraft

Volume 684: debated on Monday 10 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have for the disposal of the Canberra PR9 aircraft that retired from active Royal Air Force service on 24 June; and whether they intend to provide the necessary support, financial or otherwise, to enable at least one of the aircraft to be kept in an airworthy condition.[HL6693]

The out-of-service date for the RAF's three Canberra PR9 aircraft is 31 July 2006. The aircraft are being marketed for sale by the Disposal Services Agency. There are no plans to provide support to any of these aircraft once they have been retired from RAF service.
