    It's nice to be among people who share the same passion of aircraft as myself.

    One thing I always heard growing up, was stories of the aircraft my grandfather worked on during the war. One plane that he worked on was the Halifax. Just a question for you alll.

    Was the Halifax a good bomber? and if so why does it seem like this bomber will stay in the shadows of the Mosquito and the Lancaster.

    thank you

    Welcome...

    The Halifax? One of the most under-rated bombers of WW2....

    Welcome aboard.

    PS - don't listen to this flyboyj clown, he just makes all sorts of nonsensical stuff up. Next thing he'll be trying to sell you the C-47 as the best aircraft of WWII. ;)

    I saw a document/ memorandum the other night on TV signed by Harris in 42/43 calling the halifax a failure
