Abstract:

This report covers the trial to clear the Canberra B Mk. 15 aircraft for the carriage and release of 25-lb practice bombs in the 1,650 lb loft- bombing training role and the 2,000-lb ballistic- and loft-bombing training roles. During the trials 25-lb practice bombs were carried on and released from both aircraft bomb-bay and wing pylon installations. Resulting from the trials it is recommended that the installations be cleared for Service use and the clearance be extended by analogy to include other modified Canberra B aircraft.
