By the way if you are interested in this area , they have been doing some excellent work and have several maps online including one with Flak and Radar facilities.

Seem to have missed this thread for a few days. Thanks for the reports, they make great reading.
Don't know if you're familiar with the British Aviation Archaeological Council , but they're one of the main recovery groups in Britain.
Keep us posted on those please.

Sunderland air museum have just recovered most of a mustang from a bog in northumberland and are about to raise a plane from a lake sometime next month, they are keeping tight lipped about what it is but from conversations with different people giving little clues it is either a sterling or a sunderland flying boat.
what is this remarcable and rare aircraft :-
nothing other than a spitfire floatplane
