Handley Page Halifax B Mark III, LW127 'HL-F', of No. 429 Squadron RCAF, in flight over Mondeville, France, after losing its entire starboard tailplane to bombs dropped by another Halifax above it. LW127 was one of 942 aircraft of Bomber Command despatched to bomb German-held positions, in support of the Second Army attack in the Normandy battle area (Operation GOODWOOD), on the morning of 18 July 1944. The crew managed to abandon the aircraft before it crashed in the target area.

A bomber that is certainly holier than thou. The holes are the result of splinters from an anti-aircraft rocket that exploded next to this Handley Page Halifax Mark II over Central Europe. Remarkably she was able to make it back to base in Italy.

Beam gunners inside a Handley Page Halifax. Because of the large gunport openings, the interior of the Halifax could become numbingly cold, especially at 20,000 feet. Gunners wore special electrically heated flight suits which were plugged directly into the aircraft's electrical system. The leads can be seen running over the forward gunner's shoulder.
