Immediately following their devastating attack on the Möhne Dam, the specially modified Lancasters of 617 Squadron successfully breach the second of Germany’s mighty western dams – the Eder, on the night of the 16/17th May, 1943. After hitting the target with pinpoint precision, pilot Les Knight and Flight Engineer Ray Grayston battle with the controls of Lancaster AJ-M in order to clear the high ground beyond the dam as a torrent of water erupts into the valley below them; the wall of the Eder Dam is rent apart and collapses.
Released as part of The Dambusters Portfolio to commemorate one of the most audacious and daring RAF bombing raids during WWII, this stunning edition is available individually or as a pair with EN-ROUTE:
Every print is individually hand numbered and signed by the artist and two Dambuster veterans who flew on the crew of Lancaster AJ-M that actually breached the Eder Dam:
