  • Dambusters Anniversary Photos

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on July 18th, 2008 (All posts by )

    I recently had a post about the movie The Dambusters.

    For the anniversary of the raid the Brits had a Lancaster bomber fly over the dam the crews trained on in England during the war. Photos here.

    It is good to see that at least one of these monsters is still flying.

      I especially like the Hurricane in early war colors… about the time of the battle for france

      It seems to be a custom to fly the Lanc on important national occasions. I happened to be in London for the Queen Mother’s funeral, and saw it pass straight overhead at a fairly low altitude. Pretty cool.
