Additional Information

The ‘Dam Busters’ was the name subsequently given to RAF Squadron 617, which was based in Lincolnshire in 1943. This elite, carefully selected Squadron of skilled pilots were told to practice flying low over the Lincolnshire countryside during the spring of 1943... but did not know why. Then on a clear May night, pilots in 19 Lancaster bombers took off from RAF Scampton with the intention to fly sufficiently low across the Rhine region of Germany so that Barnes Wallis’s carefully designed ‘bouncing bombs’ would hit their targets: the Mohne, Eder and Sorpe dams. The rest, as they say, is history...

COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
To Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, the largest Bomber Command museum in the country, and a living memorial to 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WWII. It is also the only Airfield Museum in England that has been painstakingly reverted to its original design and sited on its original WWII airfield. Then onto Woodhall Spa, one of Lincolnshire’s most picturesque villages, which was famous for being the home of 617 Squadron (the Dam Busters) during WWII. Visit the Blue Bell Inn for a drink to be obtained (price not included), famous for its connections with RAF heroes of the Second World War including the famous 617 (Dam Busters Squadron) with many pictures of airmen, signatures on the ceiling and the pennies left in the beams to pay for their next pint, that sadly so often never came.

Visit to the RAF Cranwell Training College to RAF Metheringham for a 1 hour guided tour, a museum and airfield dedicated to those who flew and supported RAF 106 Bomber Squadron from 1943 until the end of WWII. Afterwards visit the Newark Air Museum, located on the former RAF station at Winthorpe. Immerse yourself in the history of Aviation, 76 aircraft & cockpits and 4 covered display areas to look at.
