Dambusters Flight Experience

75 minutes      £322.00      Voucher valid for 12 months

Prepare for an extraordinary and unforgettable adventure as you embark on a journey through history with our Dambusters Flight Experience. This unique opportunity will transport you into the world of the brave RAF pilots who trained for a perilous mission over the iconic Derwent Dams.

In the hushed secrecy of wartime, the legendary 617 Squadron descended upon these tranquil reservoirs to hone their skills in dropping Barnes Wallis' ingenious bouncing bombs. This rigorous training was in preparation for their daring assignment, officially named Operation Chastise. This mission would forever mark the squadron as the 'Dambusters,' synonymous with courage and heroism.

Your flight path will guide you southwest from Sherburn, offering panoramic views of the breathtaking Emley Moor transmitting mast, the tallest freestanding structure in the UK. As you continue, you'll follow the serene Derwent Valley, tracing the path of the river to the historic Howden, Derwent, and Ladybower dams. These dams hold a special place in aviation history and provide an awe-inspiring backdrop for your journey.

After you've soared past these iconic landmarks, our route will take you to the exquisite Chatsworth House, adding a touch of elegance to your adventure. Finally, we will return you safely to Sherburn, leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Prepare to be captivated by the bravery of the Dambusters as you embark on this remarkable flight experience. Book your seat today and become a part of this incredible chapter in aviation history.
