Discover this iconic World War II RAF Heavy Bomber, first flown in 1939 and in operation throughout the War and beyond.

This package contains 6 variants, the main being the most produced Mk.III, but with further examples of the Mk.VII, Mk.C.8, Mk.IX and the specially modified Halton passenger version produced exclusively for BOAC to help illustrate the type.

History:

The Handley Page Halifax first flew on the 25th of October 1939, and on the 13th of November 1940, entered into Royal Air Force service.

The Halifax was not without some problems in earlier models, with issues such as rudder stall and poor airflow over the wings due to the position of the Rolls Royce Merlin engines initially used.  Later versions featured more powerful Bristol Hercules radial engines, revised defensive armament, improved vertical tail surfaces and rounded wingtip extensions, with a resultant increase in performance and the ability to carry heavier payloads. The aircraft was continuously improved and upgraded throughout its service career, to go on to become one of the most popular types with its crews.

The Halifax continued in service throughout WWII primarily as a bomber but also with the SOE (Special Operations Executive) on clandestine missions, as a troop transport, parachute drops, and as glider tugs during D-Day and subsequent operations.

With the high casualty rates of heavy bombing in WWII (1,833 Halifaxes were lost), that popularity with the crews was also helped by the Halifax being considered one of the easier RAF heavy bombers to bail out of, with 25 percent of downed aircrew bailing out successfully (compared to 15 percent with the Lancaster, for example).

During WWII Halifaxes flew some 82,773 sorties and dropped 224,207 tons of bombs.

In all, 6,178 Halifaxes were built, with the last delivered in April 1945. The most numerous Halifax type was the Mk. III, of which 2,091 were built.

Within the RAF, the Halifax was operated by several other Allied and Commonwealth nations, such as the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), Free French Air Force and Polish Air Force (PAF).  During the post-war years, the Halifax remained in widespread service with Coastal Command and RAF Transport Command, and was also used by the Royal Egyptian Air Force, the French Armée de l'Air (until 1952) and the Royal Pakistan Air Force. The Royal Pakistan Air Force was last military user of the type, retiring the last aircraft in 1961.

The Halifax was used post war for several years by the civilian market as well, most notably with B.O.A.C. with a specially modified passenger version known as the Halton. A number of Mk.VIII were sold to other civilian users for freight operations. In 1948, 41 civil Halifax freighters were used during the Berlin Air Lift, operating a total of 4,653 sorties carrying freight and 3,509 carrying bulk diesel fuel.

Only three Halifaxes survive today. HR792 can be found at the Yorkshire Air Museum in Elvington, North Yorkshire, UK; NA337 is at the National Air Force Museum of Canada, in Trenton, Ontario, Canada; and W1048, unrestored but preserved, at the RAF Museum, London, UK.

MFSG - HAKODATE AIRPORT RJCH 2019 FSX P3D FS2004
Fulvio
Another great airport; much appreciated - with ORBX Global LC -, the choice to exclude the sorrounding photoscenery. In my opinion, this developer, step by step, increases its skill in creating outstanding add.ons. Let's hope for a very next ORBX Asia Open LC, in order to value to a greater extent these products.

Scenery looks good but the static gates aren't nice. Would be much better if they were SODE.

FLIGHT 1 - THE ULTIMATE 757 COLLECTION FOR FSX
David
I hope SIMMARKET replaces my previous outdated and inaccurate reviews. This is my final review after doing much research and verification. This is a excellent package for the money. Easy on system resources and great frame rate. The liveries are not included in this initial download, but are available for free (after registering your product with developer) by going to the developers website. There you will find hundreds of liveries to download and then easily install using the included livery manager downloaded with all your files after purchase. There are so many, mostly for the 200 passenger variant, but still you get a ton if you want them all. Can’t bet this deal!

A nice updated rendition of Norman Manley. Photo could be better and some AG missing in some areas, but for $5 you can't go wrong.
TRIFONOV YURI S.P. - XVISION FOR X-PLANE 11
Jose
This is a must have utility for XP11. It even works with 11.50 Vulkan if you (like me) prefer Reshade to adjust the shaders. Highly recommended.

I have this installed in P3D V4.5 HF3 and it works great. The textures are very good and performance is excellent with Orbx Europe Open LC. Night lighting is subtle and not over done, but looks realistic. I particularly like the runway lighting which is up there with the best I've seen. 4 solid stars, looses 1 only because I think the price is a little on the high side for what it is, which, as in the real world, is a fairly simple airport set in a very picturesque part of France.
