Handley Page 0/400


The genius of Sir Frederick Handley-Page as a pioneer of the large aeroplane and the foresight of the Admiralty in recognizing the possibilities of such machines in aerial warfare were jointly responsible for the Handley-Page 0/400 bomber, which can justly claim to be the first successful heavy bomber to go into regular squadron service anywhere in the world.
The 0/400 was the largest aeroplane used against the Germans by British squadrons in the Great War and it laid the foundations of heavy bomber design for the next 10 or 15 years. It became so famous that for years after the war all large aeroplanes were described as "Handley-Pages" by the British public.
