RAF BBMF DAMBUSTERS 65th Tribute.

The RAF Battle of Britian Memorial Flight, commemorating the Dambuster raid of 65 years ago, when in 1943, 133 men from almost every Allied nation, attacked German dams, and lost 53 men in the process, but cut the Nazi war effort by destroying the dams, and also raised Allied morale. There was also a flypast by two 617squadron Tornados. (617 was the squadron that made the dams raid.)
