At the Royal Air Force Museum London in Hendon, it is now possible to use virtual reality technology to sample something of the Ruhr dams raid by No 617 Squadron in 1943, thanks to the launch of the Dambusters Virtual Reality Experience.
The airshow website says: "Every morning, the public can get closer to the planes via the static display and chat with the pilots and mechanics. Various activities are on the program (signing sessions, parade of old motorcycles and cars, historical reconstruction troops, etc.).
The afternoon is specially dedicated to in-flight presentations with a show lasting more than 5 hours including a hundred aircraft flying in the sky of Essonne. The show unfolds through thematic tableaux the history of aeronautics, from the time of the pioneers to the latest generation aircraft, civil and military."
