Hi

This is to all you Canberra bomber experts out there, particularity the RAAFies. I don't want to jinx myself or anything but I may be about to embark on the restoration of a Canberra bomber, a RAAF one however one problem is it can't stand on its gear anymore. I may need to use struts or supports to hold it up and restore it. Once I get it off the truck it will need to go straight on these. Any ideas? What did the RAAF use? Are there any still around I can get my hands on? Anything on Canberras or advice is welcome. :)

Cheers,

Make a wooden brace fore and aft with a balance thingy on each wing. As I am not due back to work until late October I can't take a photo of what I am talking about. What Canberra rego are you restoring?

Sounds good, would love to see photos when you get back to work and I'd rather not say at the current point in time.
