No. 192 Squadron was a Royal Air Force squadron operational during the First World War as a night training squadron and during the Second World War as a radar countermeasure unit. The squadron operated specially modified aircraft with the task of identifying German radar patterns and wavelengths. In 1944 and 1945 the squadron flew the Handley Page Halifax from RAF Foulsham with 100 (Bomber Support) Group. During bomber raids the aircraft would provide countermeasures to German radars.

Handley Page Halifax B.MK III

Designed to meet an Air Ministry specification for a twin-engined "world-wide use" medium bomber, the Handley Page Halifax first flew on September 24, 1939. This aircraft was one of the first British bomber designs to use four engines. During WWII, it flew 82,773 operations for the RAF Bomber Command, dropping 224,207 tons of bombs. It also served as a glider tug and in special operations missions such as parachute drops of arms and agents over occupied Europe. Under the RAF Coastal Command, the aircraft served in reconnaissance and meteorological roles, and in anti-submarine warfare. After the war, Halifaxes went on to serve as freighters for British airlines.
