Holding his Lancaster AJ-P steady at 60ft above the waters of the Möhne Dam, 'Mick' Martin releases the cylindrical, bouncing bomb to send it spinning towards the dam wall. In a few moments a huge explosion will erupt up in to the night sky as the hydrostatic bomb detonates against the mighty granite walls. On the night of 16/17 May 1943 nineteen specially modified Lancasters of 617 Squadron departed from RAF Scampton on one of the most secret and daring bombing operations undertaken during World War II to destroy the huge hydro-electric dams in the Ruhr valley. Codenamed Operation Chastise, it was to become one of the most dangerous precision bombing raids ever undertaken,
