Tattoo will commemorate the Dambusters Raid

This summer's Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford will pay tribute to one of World War Two's most daring bombing missions. The 70th anniversary of the Dambusters raid will be commemorated by a flypast.

One of only two airworthy Lancasters in the world will fly alongside a specially painted, modern day Tornado GR4 from the 617 'Dambusters'.
