The Old Plane and the Sea: Rescuing the last Dornier Do 17

Published on: 25 June 2014

It is just over a year since the Dornier Do 17 German bomber was salvaged from the English Channel. This weekend the BBC News 24 Channel will screen a 30 minute TV programme looking at the challenges of the aircraft's recovery both in the sea and on the land.

The programme is scheduled for:

Saturday 28th June 2014 – 14:30
Sunday 29th June 2014 – 05:30, 10:30 and 16:30
Monday 30th June 2014 – 01:30

The Dornier Do-17 is now on display at Cosford in hydration tunnels.  If you would like to find out more about this fascinating project, click here.  You can also find out about progress and the personalities involved in the project via our blog.

If you would like to support the Museum in conserving the Dornier Do-17, you can make a donation here.  The aircraft can be seen in hydration tunnels at Cosford as part of the Wargaming.net Dornier Interpretation Zone.  For those with smart phones, you can also download an App and see a Dornier flying via augmented reality.
