Yorkshire Relish by Keith Woodcock. - Editions Available
A Halifax bomber of Bomber Command is being refueled and checked by ground crew on a snow covered RAF airfield. The Halifax was one of the three major bombers of the RAF. The Royal Air Force Halifax had a crew of six to eight, a maximum speed of 280mph (with MK.VI top speed of 312mph) service ceiling of 22,800 feet maximum range of 3,000 miles. The Halifax carried four .303 browning machine guns in the tail turret, two .303 browning machines in the nose turret, and in the MkIII there were four .303 brownings in the dorsal turret. The Handley Page Halifax first joined the Royal Air Force in March 1941 with 35 squadron. The Halifax saw service in Europe and the Middle East with a variety of variants for use with Coastal Command, in anti submarine warfare, special duties, glider-tugs, and troop transportation roles. A total of 6177 Halifaxes were built and the aircraft stayed in service with the Royal Air Force until 1952.
Sadly, but two examples of the Handly page Halifax exist today - the unrestored W1048 at the RAF Museum at Hendon, and the Yorkshire Air Museums pristine LV907 Friday the 13th, a rebuild from the remains of HR792.
