RAF Museum hopes to raise bomber from sea bed
Wednesday 17 August 2011
An appeal has been launched to help recover from the seabed a German bomber which was shot down over the Kent coast during the Battle of Britain.
The Dornier 17, which crash-landed on the notorious Goodwin Sands on 26 August, 1940, was rediscovered during an archaeological survey in 2008. It is thought to be the last surviving example of its kind. Infrared images show that the wreck is lying on its back 50ft beneath the waves.
The RAF Museum in Hendon, North-west London, hopes to raise £600,000 to salvage the aircraft and exhibit it in its Battle of Britain Beacon project.
