8The Dornier 17

The Dornier 17 was a German bomber in World War II. It took part in the Battle of Britain and the Blitz.

Its production was stopped in the 1940s and although over 2.000 were built, none survived past 1952. Until 2008.
Discovered on Goodwin Sands, near Kent, UK, a plane that was shot down on August 26, 1940, is now one amazing discovery.

The Dornier 17 was shot down by Pilot Officer Desmond Hughes and his gunner Sergeant Fred Gash, during a raid.
Last year, it was raised from the sea by the RAF museum in North London.
