Dear Dr Hunt,

With respect to the excellent Channel 4 programme you produced on recreating the famous dambusters raid, have you any views on the gyroscopic effect the spinning bomb may of had on trying to control, for alingment purpose, the Lancaster bombers during the attacks on the dams?

Best regards
