Dambusters Derwent flypast on 70th anniversary of raid

16 May 2013 Last updated at 15:36 BST

A Lancaster bomber has performed a flypast over Derwent reservoir, 70 years on from the historic World War II raid on German dams.

The reservoir was one of the sites where pilots practised dangerous low-flying ahead of their mission.

More than a third of the men never returned from the raids, which required them to fly 60ft above ground.

Danny Savage reports.
