VAPP - Dambusters 75th Anniversary

 

Dambusters

 

Seventy-five years ago today, 133 men set out on a mission that was to become one of the most enduring moments of World War ll.

 

19 specially-adapted Lancaster bombers Of 617 Squadron flew from RAF Scampton and into the history books.

 

 

Operation Chastise, remembered today as the Dam Busters raid, struck dams along the Ruhr Valley, wreaking havoc on the production Of German weaponry and disrupting vital water supplies.

 

 

A unique bouncing bomb, developed by English engineer, Barnes Wallis, saw the Moehne and Edersee Dams breached, causing catastrophic flooding not only in the Rurh Valley but the Eder Valley.

 

 

Thank you to those brave men who set out on the mission and we remember their anniversary with pride.
