These interviews were conducted by school pupils as part of a 'Their Past Your Future' project.

Andrew Mackenzie was interviewed by pupils in Dornoch Primary School. He found flying very exciting and thought that the Lancaster was the best bomber of the war. He sings a song they made up about Flying Fortresses to annoy the American airmen. He describes his experience of an anti-aircraft shell going right through the plane as well as runs to bomb the German lines after D-Day when the British troops were bogged down near Caen, France. He says that flying with 200 other Lancasters was both exciting and terrifying.
