The Allies lost ten aircrafts, the Germans lost five aircrafts and a total of 24 lives were lost. Memorials are set up both in Scotland and in Forde. Squadron and survivors still reminds the fallen and tells the story to help the history not to repeat itself. The attack went wrong and unnecessary many young lives were lost. The museum is a collection of objects from the wreck, models and a large collection of photographs from the event.
