Wow! Excellent documentary! Should be required viewing for all new RAF entrants...and anyone with any interest in military aviation. Hats off to all those brave men.

What was that great show a few years back where they put a young RAF crew in a mock up of a Dambuster Lanc, and then had them try to navigate nap of the earth at night, using only Mk1 eyeball and tools of the time?
What amazed me was the the whole crew from nose to tail was looking out and helping the nav spot exactly where he was.
Real team work.
