YORKSHIRE AIRFIELDS OF GROUP 4 - LV907’s ominous name was derived from the date it entered military service – January 13, 1944. But despite any omens of ill fortune, the 158 Squadron Halifax was destined to survive the conflict. In May 1945, just a year and a half after it was rolled off the production line, the worn-out bomber was struck off charge with 128 successful missions to its credit.
