Dambusters Run, Bleaklow & Kinder Sightseeing Tour
On the night of 16 May 1943 nineteen Lancasters from the specially formed 617 Squadron took off from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire on a daring raid that was to take them deep into Germany. On the bombing run an exact height of 60 feet had to be held. To facilitate this two spotlights were fitted below the Lancaster so that the spots of light would coincide on the surface of the water when flying at precisely 60 feet.
The Peak District is one of England's beautiful National Parks. The flight will take you through the Peak District covering Chatsworth House, the Mam Tor rock formations and Lady Bower reservoir/Derwent Valley where the RAF trained for the Dam Buster flights during World War II.
Passengers will have the opportunity to appreciate this special piece of aviation history as well taking in views of outstanding natural beauty.
