Greetings from the Wargaming Special Projects Team!
We recently teamed up with the Royal Air Force (RAF) Museum in England to pull the only recovered Dornier 17 (Do17) bomber out of the ocean.
The Dornier 17 is a light German bomber that assailed England during the Blitz in World War II but was largely fought off by Spitfire aircraft with English and Polish pilots. The plane sits in a restoration chamber at the RAF Museum in Cosford, where it is being prepped for public display.
Wargaming.net now has a dedicated exhibit hall at the RAF museum in Cosford and has developed a mobile app for examining the plane from all around the world. We will soon be giving everyone a chance to use this app to have their photos featured in a future RAF exhibition to be unveiled in London. Stay tuned for that.
This documentary created by the RAF museum tells the story of the aircraft and the excavation.
