Description Operation Chastise was an attack on German dams carried out on the night of 16/17 May 1943 by 617 Squadron RAF Bomber Command, later called the Dam Busters, using special 'bouncing bombs' developed by Barnes Wallis. The Mhne and Edersee dams were breached, causing catastrophic flooding of the Ruhr valley and of villages in the Eder valley; the Sorpe Dam sustained only minor damage. Many attempts were made by several pilots to get the Lancaster into the right position to drop its bomb so it would hit the dam just right.
