HANDLEY PAGE HALIFAX

$9.95

Titles: Handley Page Halifax No’s 1 and 2

The Halifax was a four-engine WW2 heavy bomber designed to the same specification as the contemporary Avro Lancaster and Short Stirling. It first flew in Sept 1939 and entered service in November 1940. Over 6,000 were built and it remained in production until early 1945. It was used in a number of roles including troop transport and paradropping, but was considered less capable then the Lancaster due to its inability to carry large individual bombs.

A number of different variants were produced using differing engines and defensive turret layouts, and a civil transport version known as the Halton was used post-war including during the Berlin airlift.

We offer two titles covering the flight manuals (titled Pilot’s Notes) and two Maintenance Manuals (titled AP – Volume One) for most variants of the Handley Page Halifax. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
