The Avro Lancaster was a British Heavy Bomber used extensively during WW2 to take the war into Germany.
This documentary dives deep into both the history of the aircraft itself and the amazing crews that flew them into battle.
The Dambuster Operation of 1943, aka Squadron X led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, is discussed in exacting detail.
The saddest part of this Doc is how Churchill and the British Government turned their back on RAF Bomber Command and the Lancaster Bomber Crews after the War and the only memorial that exist to RAF Bomber Command today was self-financed by the Bomber Crews themselves.
The interviews with the surviving pilots and crewmembers, most of them all well into their 90’s is a TREASURE in itself.
