Original Smiths AI/230 700Kt Airspeed Indicator installed in the high-altitude, fast tactical English Electric Canberra Bomber.



Installed in many variants of the Canberra Bomber from the Mk20 through to the offset cockpit of the PR9, this original Smiths AI/230 700kt Canberra Bomber Airspeed Indicator is in excellent condition with an unmarked glass face and operating, rotating speed limiter pointer. The rear casing has the manufacturer's production plate and also bears a 1962 service stamp.

The larger needle travels around the outer dial of the airspeed indicator while the inner needle measures off in 100kt increments. After 666.74 kts (Mach 1 - the speed of sound) the pilot would read off the Mach Airspeed Indicator to the right of the Smiths dial.

With a highly detailed 1/72 or 1/48 scale model of the Canberra Bomber perched atop its hand crafted mango wood stand, this would make a fantastic gift for any aviation enthusiast.

This Canberra Bomber Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
