RAF Wing Cmdr. Guy Gibson (Character)
from The Dam Busters (1955)
Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane: [showing Gibson a model of the targets] Well, Gibson, there it is. That's your main target - the Moehne Dam.
Gibson: So *that's* it. I thought it was going to be the "Tirpitz".
Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane: If you can blow a hole in this wall...
[points to model]
Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane: -you'll bring the Ruhr steel industry to a standstill; and do much other damage besides. I'm showing you the targets. But you'll be the only man in the squadron who knows, so keep it that way.
Gibson: Very good, sir.
Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane: [indicates other models] And these are the models of the two other dams, the Eder and the Sorpe. But, the Moehne is the most important one.
Gibson: I see, sir.
Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane: Come along and study these as often as you like. We're having regular reconnaissance to see what they're doing over there and what's the height of the water. The operation must be carried out when the lakes are full.
Gibson: When's that likely to be, sir?
