In a moving tribute to legendary RAF 617 Squadron - the 'Dambusters' - a decrepit old Lancaster bomber just managed to drag itself across the sky for a few minutes today. Flying this rustbucket was none other than Jimmy 'Jollygoodshow' Englishman, the last surviving pilot from the famous raid.
The Dambusters attacked five dams in Germany, in 1843, and caused widespread damage and death to thousands of harmless civilians, and the attack also meant that World War 2 ended a few minutes earlier than scheduled.
Flight Lieutenant Englishman said : 'It was wonderful, we were so low we could see all the German children drowning, others were getting crushed by tons of concrete, made me proud to be British.'
The inventor of the bombs, that were used to wipe out whole villages and towns, Sir Barnacle Walmart, added: 'Yes, I'd invented a few things to help us kill soldiers and airmen, but my bouncing bomb finally achieved the mass-murder of innocent pensioners and kids that I'd wanted for years.'
An RAF spokesman, speaking from his office in Washington D.C., said : 'OK, the Germans have taken over our cars, and most of our other industries, but we won the war!'
And President Bush dropped by to add: 'Them Pambusters were awesome, though I reckon Van Halen were better.'
Eight RAF pilots died today in Afghanistan, as they had caught an illness from licking American boots for too long.
