The Halifax aircraft

The Handley Page Halifax was a four-engined heavy bomber operated by the British Royal Air Force during World War II. Special versions were made for Special Operations Executive (S.O.E) to drop weapons and agents over Europe.  In the video below you can step inside a Halifax and get a tour!

Halifax BB378 used on the operation to Denmark was a modified version and had neither mid-upper turret nor a Monica (warning radar).
