This is on a Handley Page Halifax Mk III powered by four Bristol Hercules radial engines. A total of 6178 bomber versions of the Halifax were built. This is a reconstruction using a section of the fuselage of Halifax II, HR792, which carried out an emergency landing on the Isle of Lewis in 1945. The wings came from Hastings, TG536, at RAF Catterick. The reconstruction is named “Friday the 13th” in honour of Halifax, LV907, which completed 128 operations with 158 Squadron, and is representative of all examples built.
