The Last of The Dambuster Pilots

#1 by Voltman , Tue Aug 04, 2015 9:20 am

The Dambusters film was on TV at the weekend so I watched the last hour. And now this….

"Dambusters pilot Les Munro dies in New Zealand aged 96"

Only two crew members still survive.

What was it Winston Churchill said? Something along the lines of "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few"

Rest in peace

Yes we hope never to need such men again. But take nothing away from the super technical hi speed pilots of today. Our wartime pilots were super heroes but we have had an Airforce ever since those days, these young people have been in action many times and are ready to go 24/7 365 days a year.
