The Dornier 17 Project - New Lift Attempt Today
Dornier 17 - Urgent Update - Aircraft has been lifted from the seabed - photos to follow asap please keep watching BBC News channel for coverage.
The Royal Air Force Museum has identified two weather windows in which to attempt the raising of the Dornier 17.
The first of these weather windows will occur this afternoon between 3:30 pm and 6:00 pm, the second tomorrow morning between 3:30 am and 6:30 am. These timings have been judged to be best in terms of the combination of low winds and slack water tides.
The Museum has therefore instructed the crew of the GPS Apollo to make an attempt to raise the Dornier this afternoon, weather conditions permitting. This attempt will be reported live on the BBC News Channel and we will be tweeting live from the scene with images and commentary as the lift happens.
