German WWII bomber raised from the English Channel

The Dornier Do-17 aircraft was shot down off the Kent coast more than 70 years ago during the Battle of Britain.
Designed in the early 1930s, the Do 17 was one of the three main Luftwaffe bomber types used in the first three years of the war.

The Dornier Do 17, sometimes referred to as the "flying pencil", was a World War II German light bomber produced by Dornier Flugzeugwerke.

On 3 September 2010, the Royal Air Force Museum London announced the discovery of a Dornier Do 17 buried in the Goodwin Sands off the coast of Kent, England.

Attempts by the RAF Museum to raise the relic over the last few weeks have been hit by strong winds but the aircraft was successfully raised from the seabed on 10 June 2013.
