The Dambusters 70th Anniversary
So, yesterday - 16th May 2013 - was the 70th anniversary of The Dambusters raids.
I went along to Derwent Reservoir to spectate the memorial flypast for this event - the flypast consisted of a Spitfire, Lancaster and 2 Tornado GR4's from the current 617 Squadron.
The reservoir was packed with hundreds of people watching from the shoreline and up in the hills - I was on the shoreline as by the time I got there and parked up it was too late to climb up the hill (and i'm not that fit either lol).
So, here's a photo of the BBMF Lancaster bomber flying over the Derwent Reservoir.
