Dam Buster Re-enact

Went to see what the SO was up to and he was watching Nova on PBS. It was an episode where they were trying to re-enact the Lancaster raid on the bridges in Germany. Dropping the spinning bombs and all just like in "Casualities of War."

It was very good. They showed the same footage that was used in "Casualities of War" and, even better, they interviewed some of the men who had flown on the raid.

Good history, good science and good fun. Catch it if you can.
