Guy Gibson formed 617 Squadron in 1943.
He was under a lot of wartime pressure
to get that squadron ready with new technology.
I think if Gibson was to walk around the squadron today
he would be quite proud of the number of similarities
that probably exist to the 617 Squadron that he knew.
Bringing new technology into service on a relatively
short timeline that will change the way in which we fight,
I think really epitomizes what 617 Squadron stands for.
