Halifax W0148

Shot with Olympus E620
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the London Blitz, which has been the subject of many events and commemorations. If you want to get a sense of what was happening in the air, or if you just want a good day out, the RAF Museum in Hendon is a pretty good place to go. This is a Halifax bomber, pretty much in the state it was found at the bottom of a Norwegian lake in 1973. In the words of the RAF " This haunting relic reminds one that war is not a glorious business as it sits between the other immaculate and historic exhibits."
