Wow great article. Interesting read. It's amazing that the plane is in such a condition after being out there for 70years. And what a shame that it's stuck in a container now. I hope it makes it back to the UK and maybe will be displayed at the museum.

Thanks for sharing.

Yup not a good ending what is left is not whats in the photos either as it was quickly a known place and was robbed of many bits before it could be salvaged.

thanks,
Lewis
