Dornier 17 – lifted from the seabed on 10th June 2013

After weeks of preparation dives by Seatech from the GPS Marine platform ‘Apollo’, the weather was finally in our favour for a second attempt at the lift from the seabed. Witness the successful raising of the Dornier 17 from on board the lifting platform. ‘It was like bringing up a sleeping monster from out of the sea’.

The aircraft is now on display at the RAF Museum Cosford housed in two hydration tunnels.
