that are great news,

as far as I know there is no Museum in the world were a DO-17 and/or its following variants ( Do-215 , Do-217 ), which were widely used in many roles by the Luftwaffe during WW II , are exhibited.
It would be fantastic if Hendon could manage it in the next years, but it would be a great amount of work. If somebody is skillfull enough and able to handle it... the British are :!:
And they restore a former enemy plane with the same love and enthusiasm, as if it would be a Spitfire, Hurricane or what else.


Visit Hendon and Duxford and you`ll get a imagination. :wink: :)

Regards Horrido

P.S. Aircraft must fly to.....!

WWII Dornier Do-17 bomber raised from the Channel

A German bomber from WWII has been raised from the sea bed in the English Channel.

The Dornier Do-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 lain in 50ft (15m) of water on the Goodwin Sands.

Nick Higham reports from the salvage barge.
