Handley Page Halifax B Mk.I/II GR.II
The Halifax was one of the most famous Royal Air Force bombers of the 2nd World War II.
Over 6170 aircraft of all variants were built. It was mainly used by Bomber Command on bombing missions over Europe. Other Halifax's were used to drop secret agent's into enemy territory as well as undertaking long distance maritime missions over the Atlantic and the North Sea, during which they sank a total of 43 enemy ships. Their active service began in 1941 with the RAF's Bomber Command as the second large 4 engine bomber. Although many problems were encountered during its development and always being overshadowed by the Lancaster, the Halifax continued to become the most famous Allied bomber of the war. The Halifax Mk II was armed with eight Browning machine guns and could carry a 5900 kg bomb load.
