A special event hosted by historian Dan Snow has taken place at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the formation of the '617 Dambuster Squadron'.
Dan Snow unveiled new special tail art which has been produced on an RAF Tornado jet to mark the event. The broadcaster was then given the rare opportunity to fly in the aircraft.
It is 70 years since the 617 squadron formed as part of World War Two - before carrying out the daring attack on three defended dams in Germany - for which they became known as the Dambusters.
