I cant remember. The long hours pounding through the waves has made my mind go.

Everyone that comes out with us tells me I have the best job in the world I have been doing it for 22 years now and love every second so I guess they are right!

My favourite vessels are ones with cabins, working electronics, engines that keep running without constant intervention and hulls that prefer life on the surface :-)
Diver1 make sure you keep us informed with many pics etc, Sounds great!!

Here's some more information on it.

Dornier 17 Conservation Project - Aircraft Restoration at the Royal Air Force Museum

BBC News - Luftwaffe Dornier 17 at Goodwin Sands 'still intact'

Our client is keen to get is raised very soon as local scuba clubs are trying to take souvenirs for themselves and destroying the plane in the process. Needless to say the local authorities are now keeping a very close eye on activities of scuba divers in that area and nearby ports.

Its a shame that a few greedy individuals are trying to steal a few souvenirs for personal benefit when the whole plane could be raised for the benefit of many - it will be displayed in Hendon RAF museum if there's anything left of it when we go back to salvage it.
