German Bomber Salvage Attempt

RAMSGATE, ENGLAND - JUNE 10: A World War II Dornier 17 aircraft is lifted from waters of the English Channel on June 10, 2013 near Ramsgate, England. The salvage was planned through the RAF Museum to lift the only remaining German bomber Dornier 17, used during the 'Battle of Britain' of 1940. The plane on the Goodwin Sands is believed to be aircraft call-sign 5K-AR, shot down on August 26, 1940 at the height of the battle by RAF Boulton-Paul Defiant fighters. The Project has suffered many delays due to poor weather. Once recovered, the aircraft will be preserved and put on displayed for the public at the museum's Hendon base in north London (Photo by Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images)
