Overall view and cut-away of the Ariane 5 launcher

Ariane 5. Artwork showing an overall view (left) and cut-away view (right) of the European Ariane 5 launcher. Ariane 5 consists of a large first stage (lower 2/3rds of the central vehicle) flanked by two solid rocket boosters, with a smaller second stage (top 1/3rd). Most of the first stage is taken up by the vast liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen tanks, which feed the single Vulcain motor at bottom. The second stage is powered by a DASA engine powered by storable propellants (dinitrogen tetroxide and monomethyl hydrazine). The payload depicted here is the Cluster mission with its four identical spacecraft. The first Ariane 5 mission, carrying Cluster, is due for launch in mid-1996

A Canberra aircraft flying high

The original Canberra design dates from the 1940's and the prototype aircraft flew for the first time from Warton aerodrome on 13 May 1949.
The type first entered operational service with the RAF in 1951 as a medium bomber, although photo reconnaissance (PR) variants were first produced soon afterwards.
The prototype PR9 made its maiden flight on 8 July 1955. The aircraft was built under licence by Short Brothers, Belfast and in total, 23 production standard PR9s were built between 1958 and 1962. The first operational sortie was flown by an aircraft of No 58 Squadron in April 1960. The remaining PR9s serve with No 39 Squadron at RAF Marham
