    Great news but it looks awfully fragile. Hope they can do something with it after such a mammoth task in getting it to the surface under difficult conditions.

    There is a long thread on this on TOCH

    forum.12oclockhigh.net/showthread.php?t=22195

    Im sure it mentions crew outcome there and I know Ross usually wants us to refrain discussing things that are discussed all over the internet. Increases duplication.

    Default Two survived

    According to CNN the DO-17 made a belly landing on Goodwin Sands then sank in approx. 50 feet of water. The pilot and one other crewmember spent the remainder of the war in Canada, two other crewmembers died.

    Thanks but I was wondering if any crew remains were still in the plane and thankfully not .
    I have a particular interest in wartime planes found underwater [German, British or American ] because of my M.I.A. RAAF father .His 31 SAAF Liberator, lost with crew of 8, somewhere over Italy .
