    Badger was more significant.

      Here's one of the more odd B-57 mods... The RB-57F high altitude reconnnissance / spy plane.

        Canberra for me. I think it has a small edge over the Badger for significance/influence. Close, though, and the polling so far reflects that accurately in this case.

            Another RAAF mainstay, the Canberra.

            The Badger was a significant thing in it's day, though. I don't recall the canberra ever being the subject of an international incident.

            Badger please, despite my favouritism for something we operated for so long.

                    I think the Canberra's last combat use was in the Falklands war. I know the Argentines sent the few they had out at least a couple of times on combat missions.
