Glorious return: Back where it all began, a lone Lancaster marks 70 years since the audacious Dambusters raid

Thousands of people, some of whom had trekked for miles over Peak District moorland, gathered on the shores of Derbyshire’s Derwent Reservoir to watch Britain’s last Lancaster, from the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, make three runs over the Derwent Dam.

"Never in the field of human conflict …"

"we must never forget that all the time, night after night, month after month, our bomber squadrons travel far into Germany, find their targets in the darkness by the highest navigational skill, aim their attacks, often under the heaviest fire, often with serious loss, with deliberate careful discrimination, and inflict shattering blows upon the whole of the technical and war-making structure of the Nazi power."
