Behind the Scenes – Diving for the Dornier

preparing to dive
Work is progressing to recover the Dornier 17 from the seabed at Goodwin Sands in Kent.  Following on from the recent Blog entry from Seatech we thought people would like to see a short video of how the diving teams operate on board the GPS Apollo.

In the video you can see how the divers work together for this complex and delicate task.  The divers work in teams and rotate every 40 minutes.  As you will see from the footage the weather conditions at sea can change very quickly in a short space of time.
