After several delays due to bad weather conditions, the recovery of the Goodwin Sands Dornier 17 was successfully carried out on June 10. The aircraft, believed to be the sole survivor of its type in the world, was lying inverted under 50 ft of water.

It will be transported for restoration and later exposed at the RAF Museum in Hendon.

A video of the recovery is also available here.

  1. And currently right in my back yard! There was quite a crowd gathered to watch the barge after it arrived in Ramsgate Harbour Tuesday afternoon and the aircraft was still here yesterday being worked on by museum staff in readiness for its move to the conservation centre.
