Canberra B.Mk.(I)58
Unit: 5 Sqn "Tuskers", IAF
Serial: IF898 (ex RAF XK959)

This aircraft was belonged to the IAF detachment with the UN units in Congo - UN Organisation in the Congo (ONUC) in 1962. Large 'ONU' inscription on the starboard. The 'Orange Putter' radar-warning-receiver of the IAF Canberras functioned excellently in the war 1965, and warned the crews several times of PAF interceptors, in turn enabling them to take evasive action. For a number of reasons, however, several IAF Canberra attacks during this war were not very successful: while the aircraft were relatively well-equipped, their ordnance was obsolete, and many of the bombs failed to detonate. The heavy strike against the PAF radar station near Badin, however, was different in so far that all bombs detonated and caused considerable damage on secondary installations.
