The Dam Busters

True story of how the British attacked German dams in WW2 by using an ingenious technique to drop bombs where they would be most effective.

My apologies for the poor attempt at creating this poster... wrong plane, wrong air force, wrong dam :))

Everything´s wrong, but the result is great.

Ahh, but the right sentiment and thought processes!! Nicely done, all the more so for being in B&W :o)

Great shot - I am enjoying the range of movies. Well done.

Its a great merge, if you could have got the correct plane and the correct Dam it would have been a lot of travelling for one shot.

Reminds me of the song, You Dropped a Bomb on Me by the Gap Band.
Fabulous work Laine!
Janice Dunn12-Jun-2011 05:24
Yes, it's a slightly larger plane that the old WW2 ones!!! Grand idea though...
