It is a pity.  However, I suspect, knowing how tough the Canberra is, they'll have it back up on it's undercart in no time at all.    :thumbsup:

Doesn't look too bad. Trick will be getting parts for an aircraft that old.

Parts from a boneyard?

IIRC the RB-57F still used the original Canberra nose wheel design, so there'll surely be some bits available in yards around the UK if they ask nicely.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

This video from Scott Manley includes video shot from one of the NASA WB-57Fs of SpaceX's Dragon crew capsule re-entering after it's successful (unmanned) test flight to the Space Station:

Wow, that thing's certainly motoring across the sky!  :o

And very impressive camera tracking too, it was really locked on.  :thumbsup:
