German Dornier 17 bomber English Channel salvage starts
Work has begun to raise the only surviving German World War II Dornier 17 bomber from its watery grave at Goodwin Sands, off the Kent coast.
Excellent story Malachi!
You and Marc watch too much TV.
So do I, but it is called Cbeebies.
Not much news on the kiddies channel.
Unfortunately, work had to be called off on Sunday raising the DO17 as winds were too strong.
They hope to continue in a week.
I was unaware this plane is the only known surviving example.
We can only hope it can be brought to the surface.
Progress report: They’ve succeeded in getting it out of the water.
