Daniel Peut

Brisbane, Australia

Artist's Description

Last Australian built Canberra. First flight 02/07/58. Delivered 01/10/58. It was fitted with Orange Putter at Avalon prior to delivery to the RAAF. Orange Putter was a very smart hostile aircaft tail-warning radar device from the UK. A84-248 then went for trials at ARDU where tests showed that the weight of the electronics at the extreme rear-end caused control problems and it was removed. Served with 2 Sqn in Vietnam as part of USAF 35th Tactical Fighter Wing. Arrived at Phan Rang Air Base 06/67. Returned to Australia 03/71. Allocated to RAAF Base East Sale for display on main gate 18/12/86. This never happened and the aircraft stayed at Amberley. Sold 13/06/91 to Bexgold for $11,012. Fitted with the rear fuselage off A84-230.
Currently located beside A84-238 at Willowbank, Qld. sitting with its nose off the ground, canopy and nose glazing smashed and suffering badly from the elements and at the hands of vandals.
