Dornier in the news

980 Wessex Archaeology diver

The recovery operation of the Dornier 17 bomber, the last of its type, has been prominently featured on national television. Graham Scott of Wessex Archaeology’s Coastal & Marine team tells us about Wessex Archaeology’s involvement with this world class aviation archaeology discovery:
"It was reported to us by a local diver. We took up the reins and, after considerable time and effort spent promoting the site, a highly successful geophysical survey commissioned by English Heritage led to the brave decision by the Royal Air Force Museum to try to save it. Subsequently we were involved in the initial stages of the recovery project, carrying out a diver survey of the site for the museum. 
I look forward to renewing my acquaintance with the aircraft when it goes on display at Hendon."
