Dornier 17 Salvage Operation

Recommended Posts

I hope it will not be a Golf fishing case too. Some time ago a team trying to save an ex-Luftwaffe bomber from a lake of the Eastern front also disrupted the cell despite all precautions.

Looks like they may have got it - from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22846645


A German World War II bomber has been raised from the bottom of the English Channel.


The Dornier 17 aircraft was shot down off the Kent coast more than 70 years ago during the Battle of Britain.


Believed to be the only intact example of its kind in the world, it has laid in 50ft (15m) of water on the Goodwin Sands.


Attempts by the RAF Museum to salvage the relic have been hit by strong winds over the last few weeks.


The BBC's Nick Higham on board the salvage barge said the weather conditions for the hour-long operation were "near perfect" on Monday evening.......
