I have seen this posted on Facebook this morning ,i don't know if there is any other way of viewing it.Here it is for those that don't do F/Book. https://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/london/things-to-see-and-do/immersive-histories-dambusters.aspx https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=ZZ4cSnR0YUc https://www.facebook.com/rafmuseum/videos/633010687164139/ Step back in time to the early hours of 17 May 1943 and on board Lancaster G-George to join the Dambusters on their legendary mission. Using the latest virtual reality and haptic technology, in conjunction with a physical 1:1 recreation of the interior of the iconic Avro Lancaster bomber, experience key events from the Dambusters Raid as never before. Witness decisive moments play out before you as you explore the aircraft piloted by Wing Commander Guy Gibson DSO and Bar, DFCand Bar. Listen to communications between the crew as their mission progresses; monitor the aircraft’s altitude and route as you gaze out of the Lancaster’s windows; witness the Ruhr Valley as it whizzes past at very low altitude; feel the tension increase as each Lancaster endeavours to bust the Mohne Dam, before learning the full outcome of your mission. Each detail has been painstakingly recreated using primary accounts from crew members who flew the mission, and with the assistance received from experts on Operation CHASTISE and the Avro Lancaster bomber.
