    Part of that was filmed here though I never knew it at the time until I watched the show.

    I just finished watching it on Nova. Excellent show! It's amazing that DC-4 pilot hit the center block on the dam with an X painted on it. Fantastic flying!

    Saw that on the local PBS in Minneapolis last night. Pretty good show. PBS also has a shwo called Secrets of the Dead that covered the raids. They had more detail on the training of the aircrews for the dam busting missions.

    Next week on Nova (same PBS station, same PBS time) they are showing RAF Photo-Recon units and how they photographed Nazi weapons sites

    Old Arnie passed away May 2012. Tonights Ice Pilots episode ended with Buffalo flying his ashes to Yellowknife for a remembrance service and ash scattering.
    For part of the flight back to Yellowknife, the urn with his ashes flew in the pilots seat c/w headset. Very moving.
