"Bombing up one of the big Halifax aircraft used in the Canadian bomber group overseas is a considerable job.  It takes the bombing up team a good deal of work and time to fit the bombers for their journey's over Germany.  Mixed loads, like the one pictured to the left with high explosive bombs behind the tractor and incendiaries behind those, gave the Nazies a maximum amount of headaches." 408 Squadron, August 10, 1943
