Looks like you had a great day out at a very cool museum Jase. I love those wall paintings, especially the full length one of the Lancaster production line and I bet you spent a good long while studying those models?

Can't get over how much your youngest looks like Daisey though? Peas in pod or what?! Blink Cool

Newark Air Museum

One of the few places you can get see a real Upkeep Mine (Bouncing Bomb) as used in the legendary Dambuster Raids, dropped from Provisioning Lancaster bombers. This legendary weapon is on loan from the MOD, which was made possible by the Sir Barnes Wallis Memorial Trust. This item was a test piece mine dropped at Reculver in preparation for the raid.

617 Squadron was equipped with B.III (Specials), officially designated the "Type 464 (Provisioning)" Lancaster bombers, which were heavily modified to carry the 9,250lb "Upkeep" bouncing bomb.
The bomb bay doors were removed and the ends of the bomb bay were covered with fairings. "Upkeep" was suspended on laterally pivoted, vee-shaped struts which sprang apart beamwise when the bomb-release button was pressed. A drive belt and pulley to rotate the bomb at 500rpm was mounted on the starboard strut and driven by a hydraulic motor housed in the forward fairing. The mid-upper turret was removed and a more bulbous bomb aimer's blister was fitted; this, as "Mod. 780", later becoming standard on all Lancasters, while the bombsight was replaced by a simple aiming device. Two Aldis lights were fitted in the rear bomb bay fairing; the optimum height for dropping "Upkeep" was 60ft and, when shone on the relatively smooth waters of the dam's reservoirs, the light beams converged into a single spot when the Lancaster was flying at the correct height.

The Derwent Valley Museum - contains a wealth of information about the 617 Dambuster Squadron.

The Derwent Valley Dam was used by the Dambsuter pilots to practice their bombing runs and target practice. It was also used in the 1955 “The Dambusters” movie to recreate the risky task of low level flying at night.
