To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the famous Dambusters Raid, which took place on 16th May 1943, Airfix are introducing the new 617 Squadron Dambuster 80th Anniversary Gift Set as well re-releasing a range of classic Lancaster bombers kits.
This year will mark a significant anniversary for one of the most famous bombing attacks in the history of warfare and the heroic exploits of the crews who took part in it. On the night of 16th -17th May 1943, Wing Commander Guy Gibson led 617 Squadron of the Royal Air Force on an audacious bombing raid to destroy three dams in the Ruhr valley, the industrial heartland of Germany. The mission was codenamed Operation ‘Chastise’. The dams were fiercely protected. Torpedo nets in the water stopped underwater attacks and anti-craft guns defended them against enemy bombers. 617 Squadron had a secret weapon: ‘bouncing bomb’.Airfix Models can be used to educate modellers about this historic event, designed so people can accurately recreate (and learn about) the Avro Lancaster B.III and commemorate the legacy of 617 Squadron. A great deal of research goes into producing accurate representations of aircraft of the time – we’re happy to be contacted about this. Our researcher and flight specialist are founts of knowledge on the subject.
