# English Electric Canberra

## History

Work on designing a jet powered bomber by English Electric started in 1944. Initially as a private idea to build a replacement for the Mosquito bomber. The Air Ministry in the summer of 1945 issued specification E.3/45 for a light jet bomber capable of carrying a 4000lb bomb load over 1400 nautical miles and with a ceiling of 50000 feet. In addition the aircraft was to have a crew of 2, be un-armed and use a radar bombing system, so was born the Canberra.
