    A bit of gaffer tape and some WD40 and she would be good to go.




    Good to see they got it up without it completely falling apart and a bit of preservation without too much trying to rebuild it would be best IMHO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I'll vote for keeping it in a state of 'arrested decay'-- clean off the marine layer, stop corrosion and display it. Cannot wait to see what it looks like flipped over...

    Some great photo's of the Dornier lift from this site which is very interesting in its own right. Hope the link works for you chaps out there, and although it's attached to facebook you can still access its photo's without being on facebook.

    Here's the BBC piece on it, it's about 4:24 onwards...

    Pleased that they say they will "conserve" rather than "restore"...

    Looks like it is going to RAF Cosford. If it will be on display while work is carried out, a trip is in order. Not too far for me and very local for Ned.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Interesting radio short about the preservation process of the Dornier today in an interview with Prof. Mary Ryan on BBC Radio 4. Starts at about 8 mins 12 into the programme.
