It is 75 years ago that the two Ruhr dams and one Weser dam were attacked by the Dambusters. Now I have finally upgraded from Flight Simulator FSX to 64bit Prepar3D v4.1, let's see how it looks like with the default scenery configured to the highest setting, compared to real-life (real-world pictures from here).

First the Mohne reservoir and the Mohne dam;

Recognizable, but where is the dam?

It's not there. Let's move to the Eder reservoir;

Again recognizable, but where is the dam?

It's not there either.

There were also bombers that tried to breach the Sorpe dam. Let's see...
