Bomb Away illustrates The Dambusters Attack on the Mohne Dam. Squadron leader Guy Gibson had made the first attack, but the dam wall held. The second to attack John Hopgood was hit by flak and his Lancaster crashed in a ball of flames behind the dam. Next up was Micky Martin in Lancaster AJ-P. As depicted Micky Martins releases his Barnes Wallace designed "Bouncing Bomb" at a height of 60 feet which explodes against the dam wall. The dam wall initially held but not for long.
