    It just said on the news that it be at least 1 month before they are ready to lift as they have to fit the lifting cradle to it underwater before they can commence.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    lets hope it gets a better fate than the heinkel111 they salvaged in Norway a few years ago,they broke it up and scraped it at duxford.

    Thank you for the link. Unless a wreck is a war grave, I have often wondered just who owns the wreckage like this or sunken ships, etc. Does it matter when wreck like this is in territorial waters or in international water? War relic or just a sunken fishing boat? Is it first dibs for salvage rights? Off the coast of the USA some years back a 1700's era ship was located and was stuffed with treasure. IIRC, the Spanish Gv laid claim to the bounty asserting it was their property.

    I am relatively uninformed on this fascinating issue. Thanks!

    The attempt at raising the aircraft is today! Its expected to break the surface between 2030 and 2100 hours tonight and will be covered live by the BBC.

    Fingers crossed that the team are successful and its raised in one piece!
