THE DAMBUSTERS - BREACHING THE MÖHNE
Flying at altitudes as low as fifty feet and observing strict radio silence, the crews taking part in the Dambuster Raids faced heavy flak and ground fire as they crossed Holland to Germany. On the run into the target, using their height finding spotlights, they would have to fly in complete darkness at precisely 60 feet before their lethal cargo could be released.
Gerald uses his undeniable skills to recreate the attack on the Möhne Dam as Mick Martin's Lancaster pulls away, his 'Upkeep' bomb exploding behind him sending a huge plume of water into the air. Guy Gibson flies to his right drawing flak from the anti-aircraft guns on the towers.
