Wasn't there a similar site found near Australia a few years ago, anyone know what happened? Didn't the Aussie government declare it off limits?

The Stuka is amazing, pity the Do17 isn't in the same condition.

Hi All,
PJ,
Many thanks for the article great post and like you say that Stuka looked to be a good candidate for recovery ? On the initial image I thought wow then as you got closer it looked rougher and rougher but all the same excellent stuff. :applause:
