Description

The Avro Lancaster was the most famous heavy RAF bomber of the Second World War and was put into service in 1942. More than 7,300 of these machines were built for the RAF bomber command. One of the main goals of the RAF was to destroy the Ruhr dams that supplied power to important industrial plants. In order to attack targets as robust as dams, a rotating bomb was developed, better known as a bouncing bomb. A new special unit was set up for this attack, Wing 617 under the command of Wing Commander Guy Gibson. The mission, codenamed Operation Chastise, took place on the night of May 16-17, 1943 with 19 Lancaster bombers. The first two dams - Möhne and Eder - were successfully destroyed, while the other two - Ennepe and Sorpe - withstood the attack.

Decals for 1 RAF version included:

  • Avro Lancaster B.Mk. III (Special) Squadron No. 617, Royal Air Force, May 1943
