    That's good-reasonably intact, from the looks of it, all things considered.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Looks like the airplane is going to spend the next few years in a "Mary Rose"-type chamber.

          Another couple articles concerning the Do17 came up. Thought they might be of interest.

                    I'm not sure. Portions of the aircraft fell off during the lift, quite likely the engines were among those items. Another, probably less publicized operation, is to take place and recover those articles left behind.
