Dornier 17

Wessex Archaeology has been working with the RAF Museum to investigate a rare example of a Dornier 17 German bomber submerged off the coast of Kent, south east England. The aircraft is thought to have been shot down in August 1940 during the Battle of Britain. It was found by a local diver. Wessex Archaeology was asked to carry out a geophysical survey and, earlier this year, to carry out a diving inspection. The RAF Museum plans to recover the aircraft for eventual display. More information, including a video of the aircraft underwater, can be found on the RAF Museum website.
