Luftwaffe Dornier 17 off the Kent coast
Working closely with the RAF Museum at Hendon, the Port of London Authority (PLA) has surveyed the wreck of a German bomber sunk off the Kent coast.
A further detailed survey was recently carried out by the PLA and a BBC film crew was onboard the PLA's survey vessel "Yantlet" at the time.
