Pictured: Lancaster bomber in dramatic flypast to mark 65th anniversary of Dambusters raid (U.K.)
A Lancaster bomber has performed a flypast over Derwent reservoir, 70 years on from the historic World War II raid on German dams. The reservoir was one of the sites where pilots practiced dangerous low-flying ahead of their mission. More than a third of the men never returned from the raids, which required them to fly 60 feet above ground.
