While at the public library today looking at avaition art books I saw 2 pictures, one a Handley Page Halifax. The other a Avro Lancaster.

Both had numerious mission bombs painted on the noses, 128 I think for the Halifax. about 2/3 were in red paint, 1/3 in yellow.

Does anyone know what the different colors signify?
