16 May 1943: As night begins to fall, RAF Lancasters from 617 Squadron leave England at low level heading for Germany’s Ruhr dams on Operation Chastise – the Dambusters raid. The specially modified bombers are carrying the Barnes Wallis-designed “bouncing bomb” code-named Upkeep. This photorealistic reconstruction is part of a series.

NEWS UPDATE: this image has been bought by a publisher in Lincolnshire (“bomber county”) for use in a bookazine commemorating the 70th anniversary of the operation against the Ruhr dams in May 2013.

Includes a heavily modified version of an aircraft originally photographed by Ronnie Macdonald (used with permission).

I am available for commissions. Please ask.
