Handley Page Halifax 

Reference photos by Tom Calbury

14 cyl Bristol Hercules

 

      

Photos were taken the RCAF museum at 8 Wing CFB Trenton on Friday Dec 27th,2002 of the Halifax restoration. For those interested in more information on the restoration of Halifax NA 337, I would encourage you to visit the RCAF Memorial Museum at http://www.rcafmuseum.on.ca/  You will find a brief history of this aircraft along with pictures of NA 337 before restoration began. When you see the pictures of this aircraft on the hangar floor when it arrived at CFB Trenton, you will appreciate the sheer magnitude of this project. I have had the opportunity to see this A/C every year for the past five years, and the progress that the team of dedicated volunteers is making is nothing short of incredible.
