Halifax

Handley Page Halifax je bil štirimotorni težki bombnik, ki so ga uporabljale Kraljeve letalske sile (RAF) med 2. svetovno vojno. Halifax je poletel približno eno leto in pol pred precej podobnim Avro Lancastrom. Kljub temu, da sta bombnika od različnih proizvajalcev, sta si na izgled in po dimenzijah skoraj identična. Halifax uporablja za pogon zvezdaste motorje, Lancaster, za razliko, pa uporablja V-motorje.
