CANBERRAWK163 – Mouse Mat
Our Canberra WK163 mouse mat showing her in the mid-90s when WK163 was repainted with Scorpion artwork to look like she did when capturing the World Altitude Record in 1957. A stunning image caught by John Dibbs.
The significance of the Scorpion is that WK163 was the ‘Scorpion Rocket Motor’ test airframe. WK163 first flew after modification on the 20th May 1956 and whilst undertaking these trials, the aircraft obtained the world record for aircraft altitude at 70,310ft on the 28th August 1957.
