I have always been interested but never able to get an answer on the make and model of what appears to be an early era jet fighter (or possibly trainer) based at the Canberra Airport. They are located near the intersection of Majura Rd and Fairbairn Ave. From my amateur knowledge of military aircraft, it’s shape looks like it was built in the early jet aircraft era after WW2.
Its been a while since I have stopped to look at the aircraft but to my memory, it looks similar to the Bell XP-83 prototype WW2 jet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_XP-83http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_XP-83). Obviously, that is not the plane but my desperate Google and Wikipedia haven’t returned anything else that looks quite as similar.
I’m hoping one of RiotACT’s fine readers would be able to shed some light on the history of this aircraft. Was
