The second of Britain\'s four-engined bombers to enter frontline service, Handley Page\'s Halifax has forever lived in the shadow of Avro\'s superb Lancaster. However, it was a Halifax which became the first RAF \'heavy\' to drop bombs on Germany when No 35 Sqn raided Hamburg on the night of 12/13 March 1941. Between 1941-45, the Halifax completed some 75,532 sorties with Bomber Command alone [compared with the Lancaster\'s 156,000], not to mention its sterling work as both a glider tug and paratroop carrier with the Airborne Forces, maritime patrol mount with Coastal Command and covert intruder with the SOE.
