Article about: Uggg....You's answered my questions. I guess it's a good thing the RAF has some common sense. Thanks for the information. Ron
Re: Rare Do 17 discovered off Kent Coast
No not a diver, i wish! no the wreck of the lancaster is in the relatively shallow waters of pegwell bay, think there is a shot of a raf helicopter winchman stood on a wing online somewhere, shouldnt think there is much left of it now, 60 plus years in shallow salt water, the b17 engines were dug out some years ago it crashed in to marshland close to mouth of the river stour.
Both aircraft were trying to make it back to raf manston when they ditched.
Rumour has there are many more wrecks dotted around my corner of kent.
Some of which are just rumours, but my grandfather told me of wrecksites he stood guard over when he was was in the home guard.
Its something thats always interested me but i never followed up.
