A massive plume of water erupts as the bouncing bomb from Sqn Ldr ‘Dinghy’ Young’s Lancaster scores a direct hit on the Möhne Dam, at 00.40 hours on the night of 16/17 May, 1943. Having already made their attacks, Flt Lt Micky Martin and W/Cdr Guy Gibson bravely circle the flak positions with navigation lights on, drawing enemy fire. By destroying the Möhne and Eder Dams, and damaging the Sorpe Dam, the Lancasters of 617 Squadron recorded one of the most remarkable night air operations of WorldWar Two.
