75th Anniversary Of The Dambusters Raid Takes Place Over Derwent Dam

CONINGSBY, ENGLAND - MAY 16: Wing Commander John Butcher, Commanding Officer of 617 Squadron, (L) jokes with Britain's last surviving 'Dambuster', Squadron Leader George 'Johnny' Johnson, during an event to mark the 75th anniversary of the 'Dambusters' raids, at RAF Coningsby on May 16, 2018 in Coningsby, England. The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was hoping to fly one of the two remaining Avro Lancaster bombers over the Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs, but high winds prevented the aircraft from taking off. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the formation of the RAF and the 75th anniversary of the 617 Squadron Dambusters operation. The Dambuster raids, or ''peration Chastise' was an attack on German dams on 16-17 May 1943 by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron, using an innovative 'bouncing bomb', which skimmed on the surface of the reservoir before hitting the dam wall and exploding.
