Hi
There is a programme about an experiment to reproduce the bouncing bomb on Channel 4OD

http://www.channel4.com/programmes/dambusters-building-the-bouncing-bomb/4od#3186574

Included is some war time footage with what appears to be a 3axle bus version of Rick's Jolly Green.

Yes that was on C4 a few days ago, top flying from the DC4 pilots and well worth a watch.

Some of the re-constructions were done at East Kirkby using their Lanc and Fordson crewbus, see:

Yes I noticed that Rick. As those shots represented real war-time shots I thought the "Just Jane" name would have been covered up. Nevertheless a very absorbing film.

Went to East Kirkby with the motorbike club last year.
For anyone who hasn't been it is very interesting and the Lanc. engines powered up are awesome from a few feet away.
