The Martin/General Dynamics RB-57F Canberra is a specialized strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed in the 1960s for the United States Air Force by General Dynamics from the Martin B-57 Canberra tactical bomber, which itself was a license-built version of the English Electric Canberra. It was operationally assigned to the Air Weather Service for weather reconnaissance involving high-altitude atmospheric sampling and radiation detection in support of nuclear test monitoring, but four of the 21 modified aircraft performed solely as strategic reconnaissance platforms in Japan and Germany.

dbo:abstract
  • Martin/General Dynamics RB-57F Canberra to dwusilnikowy, dwumiejscowy turboodrzutowy, wysokościowy samolot rozpoznawczy będący rozwinięciem Martin RB-57D Canberra a ten - z samolotu bombowego Martin B-57 Canberra. Samolot konstrukcyjnie został dostosowany do lotów wysokościowych poprzez zwiększenie rozpiętości z 19,5 na 37,5 m. W efekcie tego samolot cechuje się zwiększonym wydłużeniem i jednocześnie niskim obciążeniem powierzchni- co - przy silnikach o zwiększonym ciągu przedkłada się na dobre parametry lotne i osiągi wysokościowe.

It was operationally assigned to the Air Weather Service for weather reconnaissance involving high-altitude atmospheric sampling and radiation detection in support of nuclear test monitoring, but four of the 21 modified aircraft performed solely as strategic reconnaissance platforms in Japan and Germany. Three of the modified aircraft were destroyed with loss of their crews while performing operationally. The remainder were re-designated WB-57F in 1968. Four of the survivors were subsequently used by NASA for high-altitude atmospheric research. The others were retired from 1972 to 1974 and placed in storage. As of 2015, three WB-57Fs are the only B-57 aircraft model still flying, in service with NASA. (en)
