Aerial footage of Dambuster flypast over Derwent Water

Video footage taken from onboard a Canadian Lancaster bomber over the site where the famous Dambusters raid was rehearsed has been released.

Hundreds of onlookers gathered as the last two airworthy Lancasters flew over Derwent reservoir, in Derbyshire - one of the practice sites used.

One, Thumper, is based in Lincolnshire, and the other, Vera, is normally based in Canada. The event, on Sunday, was the climax of a nationwide tour involving both aircraft.
