Did You Know?

This design is based on Lancaster “AJ-G” (serial number ED932 ) flown by Wing Commander Guy Gibson VC, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar when he led Operation Chastise (also known as the “Dambusters Raid”) at the age of 24. Operation Chastise was an attack on German dams carried out on the night of 16/17 May 1943 by 617 Squadron RAF Bomber Command, using special "bouncing bombs". The Möhne and Edersee dams were breached, however the 53 of the 133 aircrew who took part were killed, 3 captured, with 8 of the 19 Lancasters that took part were destroyed. Of the survivors, 34 were decorated at Buckingham Palace on 22 June, with Gibson awarded the Victoria Cross.
