Photo Comment

When restoration of this Halifax Mk.III composite was completed in 1984, it was the only complete example in the world, although a second has since been recovered from a Norwegian lake and restored for display in Canada. Based around large fuselage sections of Halifax Mk.II HR792, parts from LW687 and JP158 were also used, along with the wings from Hastings TG536. Painted on the port side as Mk.III LV907 of 158 Sqdn, the starboard side represents Mk.IV NP763 'H7-N' with French roundels, commemorating an aircraft of that country's 346 (Guyenne) Sqdn, which was based at Elvington.
