Sqn Ldr Munro died in hospital in his native New Zealand on Tuesday following heart problems, the association said.

The legendary World War Two Dambusters operation (Operation Chastise) flew from RAF Scampton, near Lincoln, in 1943 and successfully used “bouncing bombs” to attack German dams.

There are now only two surviving crew members of the Dambusters missions.

Out of 133 crew, only 77 returned.

Now he has been reunited with his mates.
