Dambusters raid 65th anniversary: video coverage

Great BBC video coverage of today’s Dambusters 65th anniversary flypast at the Derwent dam in Derbyshire. The ‘City of Lincoln’ Lancaster from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight can be seen overflying the dam three times. Another report showing footage recorded at Scampton and Coningsby, with the reporter inside the Lancaster while it is in its hangar. 

Nice picture on the Daily Mail website. It doesn’t look as though there are that many people in the background. Only 400 cars were allowed up the access roads to the Ladybower reservoir to avoid the traffic problems which had occurred on previous flypasts. Was this a bit on the cautious side?

Please let me know if you have any other still or video pictures, and I will post a link to them on this blog.
