The Dambusters Raid

"Flying into History" with Professor Richard Morris and Dr Robert Owen, the Official Historian of the No 617 Squadron Aircrew Association

The breaching of the Mohne and Eder Dams in May 1943 has gone down in history as one of the greatest feats of arms ever undertaken by the RAF. Achieved through the combined genius and persistence of Barnes Wallis and the skill and courage of the aircrew of 617 Squadron, the Dams Raid continues to seize the imagination of successive generations. The 617 Squadron went on to famously sink the German battleship Tirpitz, using Barnes Wallis's 'earthquake' bombs. 

Discover more about the legendary operations and discuss them in the company of two established authorities: your hosts and guides are historian and author Professor Richard Morris and Dr Robert Owen, the official historian of the 617 Squadron Aircrew Association, who together wrote "Breaching the German Dams - Flying into History", which revealed new aspects of the Dams Raid and the weapon that made it possible.
