In England, a World War II Lancaster bomber has made a special flight to mark the 80th anniversary of the Dambusters raids.

The plane, from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, took off from its home base in Lincolnshire and flew over the RAF Museum north-west London, just after 11 o’clock yesterday morning.

The mission dropped bouncing bombs on the flight paths leading up to the dams.  Fifty-three airmen were killed in the famous mission, on the 16th and 17th of May 1943; made more significant this year because it’s the first taking place without any surviving crew.

The last dam buster, Squadron Leader George ‘Johnny’ Johnson, died last December at the age of 101.
