Just a reminder that yesterday the 16th, was the 80th anniversary of the dam busters raid. Brilliant and skilful flying, with bravery by all.

Ditto Neil, there are a few documentaries on TV over here at the moment.

Locally we have the Ashley Walk bombing Range where the Dambusters and the Grand Slam bomb were tested, all overgrown now but there is a memorial there.

Heros all, happy anniversary. :salute:


It certainly was a daring raid that required a lot of skill and watching them practice on the documentary confirmed it, the raid itself required some darn fine piloting skills. I also remember seeing pilot Arnie recreate a practice spinning bomb drop on Ice Pilots.
