there is a movie about the Lancaster Bomber, that can be seen for free on Tubi, and I recommend you skip ahead to 2:25, nothing happens and nothing is on screen until then

the story of the iconic WW2 bomber, through the words of the last surviving veterans.

Winning a war is not easy, 

Starting with ‘The Blitz’, this film follows 38 vets, contributors to this film, as they join-up, learn to fly and go to war. With the enemy strong and RAF Bomber Command badly equipped, losses were high. But eventually, the tide turned with the introduction of the Lancaster.

 Designed to take the war to the enemy - and to win it.

From the firestorms of Hamburg, through the famous Dambuster raids and the still-controversial bombing of Dresden, emotional testimonies tell of courage, fear, friendship and moral ambiguity. 

55,000 aircrew and 600,000 civilians were killed. Such was the cost of defeating the Nazis and restoring peace to Europe.
