A Lancaster bomber flies over Derwent Reservoir in Derbyshire, England on May 16, 2013, as part of events marking the 70th Anniversary of an air-raid on three dams in Germany's Ruhr Valley by a team of airmen dubbed the 'Dambusters'. A British World War II Lancaster bomber performed a flypast Thursday over a reservoir used for practice runs by the legendary 'Dambusters' airmen to mark 70 years since their daring raid over Nazi Germany's industrial heartland. The four-engined aircraft was joined by two Spitfires and two modern-day Tornado jets as they swept over the Derwent Reservoir in Derbyshire, northern England, where the Royal Air Force trialled the 'bouncing bomb'.
