The irrigation process of spraying the Do 17 with citric acid to neutralise any impurities inside the aircraft has finished. The next phase of the process is to thoroughly dry out the aircraft and to do this the three large sections, fuselage, tail boom and wing, have all been placed inside temporary covers with dehumidifiers inside. Indications are that this process is working.
To see the amazing moment when the aircraft was lifted from the seabed in 2013 please view our video.
Visitors are able to learn all about the aircraft via a website devoted to the Dornier Do 17 project where you can view video footage, photographs and archive information about this pioneering project. To view it please go to Dornier Do 17 Project microsite.
The methodology for recovering the Dornier from the seabed was altered as explained here.
We have loaded a selection of photos taken onboard the GPS Apollo (early May 2013) into the image gallery and these can be viewed here. There is also a video with footage of the divers available here.
The Ministry of Defence is responsible for the investigation of all military aircraft crash sites in the United Kingdom (including those situated in UK territorial waters) and only issued a licence for recovery of the Dornier because it was NOT a war grave. The aircraft's crew of four were all accounted for and no human remains were present in the aircraft.
Early research and preliminary site survey work for the Dornier Do 17 was supported by the Society of Friends at our London based Museum. The lifting of the Dornier was made possible by support from the National Heritage Memorial Fund. Additional support has come from EADS, 328 Support Services, the RAF Historical Society, the RAF Museum American Foundation and the generosity of the public. The exhibition and conservation of the Dornier is supported by Wargaming.net.
