RAF Wing Cmdr. Guy Gibson (Character)
from The Dam Busters (1955)
Gibson: Well, the sixpenny bombsight works and the spotlamps work. We've flown two thousand hours, and dropped a good many more than two thousand practice bombs. The specially converted aircraft start arriving tomorrow. So, from now until the word "go" I want you to practice flying them at your all-up proper weights.
Gibson: You can work that out, Dinghy. Don't forget that some of the armour's been taken out. And don't exceed 63,000 pounds or otherwise we shan't get off.
Gibson: Any problems?
Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC: You want the front gunner to stay in his turret the whole time?
Gibson: Oh yes, he'll have to deal with the flak guns.
Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC: The trouble with that is his feet.
[mimics with fingers]
Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC: They dangle in front of the bomb-aimer's face. How about fixing up some stirrups to get his feet out of the way and make him more comfortable?
