    Be interesting to follow this up-
    "Diving enthusiasts have produced a 3D scan of a World War Two fighter plane which crashed off the Dorset coast on 7 May 1944.
    The scan shows engine parts and debris of the US Air Force P47-D Thunderbolt scattered on the seabed, 25m (80ft) below the surface of Weymouth Bay."

    It would be great if they could at least try to bring up that engine.

    That would be interesting to follow. I hope they'll display the relics.
