The Handley Page was originally designed as a twin engined bomber, but was redesigned in 1937 and the prototype flew only seven weeks after the outbreak of World War Two. The first types of Halifax, Mark I and Mark II, were fitted with in-line engines and triangular fins and it was not until 1944 that the radial engineed Mark II appeared. When production ceased in 1946, 6,176 Halifax aircraft had been produced and over 2,000 of these were the BIII variant.
