Blast from the past. Feel the Power of Canberra

By johnboy 24 December 2013 23

For over a decade the infamous “Feel the Power of Canberra” campaign has been the but of ridicule.

But Loose Brown has just found the vid on YouTube and, well, I don’t know. It’s held up rather well hasn’t it?

Anyone remember the “Feel the power of Canberra” Jet? The owner was paid to paint the slogan on the side of his clapped out Iskra to promote Canberra, and it sat on the grass apron at Canberra airport slowly rusting for years.

When I worked at Vee H Aviation we stored that jet in our big hangar. We all wanted to go up in it until we saw that the ejector seats had been disabled for “safety reasons”…….

Disarming the ejector seats would be standard practice when “civilianising” an ex-military aircraft, at least here in Australia. That would have been the least of my worries…

Yep although apart from that it was quite air worthy and had low hours on it compared to the two Cessna Titans and the Conquest ( all nudging 30,000 hours ).

The thing is with something like that is it becomes a dart when it loses power unlike something like a Cessna 182 which has enough wing span and control that you MAY be able to land safely.

When it all goes wrong in that there is no chance. Having said that, I do often wonder if it was the jet that killed two in a joy flight before the Bathurst car race a few years ago.

I’d never heard of it and wasn’t able to find any info about it after a google search. Have you got a source for that?

Was falling off horses a bit of a habit for Ms Carnell?
