"It was the most daring air raid the world had ever seen. The RAF's elite 617 Squadron, nicknamed the Dambusters, flew 19 Lancaster bombers into Nazi Germany and destroyed two Ruhr valley dams with their revolutionary "bouncing bombs". On the 65th anniversary of Operation Chastise, as the mission was codenamed, this picture shows the cockpit of the oldest surviving Lancaster, S-Sugar. Now on display at RAF Hendon, she flew in 137 Second World War raids – more than any other aircraft."

"It was one of the most stirring images of the Second World War - a Lancaster bomber coming in terrifyingly low over a huge dam. And for the last surviving pilot of the epic Dambusters operation, seeing a bomber flying again must have felt like stepping back in time."
