“The Dornier is a hugely exciting project and we’re lucky that so many people share our enthusiasm for recovering and conserving this unique aircraft. With the lift complete, our focus is now on raising money to support the conservation of this at risk artefact to ensure that the Dornier is preserved so that future generations can learn from her story. If you would like to make a donation to support the conservation of the Dornier please click here. You can make a donation of any size and it will make a real contribution to our efforts. We would not have reached this point without the incredible generosity of the public or a number of key donors and we would like to thank them everyone who has donated so far for their support.
However, the fundraising doesn’t end now the Dornier is safely at Cosford. This is an on-going project and we anticipate the conservation will take at least two years. The aircraft is in a vunerable state and her future condition uncertain. We can only preserve her using state of the art techniques. This is an expensive process and we need your support to ensure the Dornier can take her rightful place on exhibition within our Battle of Britain collection. The Museum holds eight of the twelve remaining Battle of Britain aircraft and we desperately want to increase this number to nine. The RAF Museum is a charity and needs your support to make this a reality. Please donate to our Dornier 17 conservation appeal and help ensure we can save the Dornier 17″
