Last month I posted a story (here) on the RAF Museum's plans to salvage a long-lost WW2 German Dornier Do 17 bomber which had ditched on the Goodwin Sands after being shot down during the Battle of Britain. The one known remaining example of the "Flying Pencil" was discovered back in 2008 to be more-or-less intact at a depth of about 15 metres under the waves.
This is great news for air-buffs, like me. I've seen surviving specimens of German WW2 bombers, such as the Heinkel 111 and Junkers Ju 88, courtesy of the very excellent RAF Museum in Hendon -- the Dornier Do 17 will be a nice addition.
