Great shot! A fitting tribute to a brave raid all those many years ago. Too bad we can't see the bomb skipping along the water...

Apart from it being techinicaly a good photo take yourself back 60 years and remember this photo could have been taken then, given modern technology, May all those who lost their lives on the Damnbusters raid be remembered by this picture.

A Dambuster caught in the act, a wonderful tribute.

Well Done, Dambuster!
