Dornier D017’s final resting place has been announced
Today Wargaming announced that the final resting place for the only known surviving Dornier Do17 aircraft will be entering the Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford, Shropshire, United Kingdom upon completion of restoration in 2015.
The aircraft will provide visitors with an opportunity to view the renovation process and allow them to learn more about the aircraft’s history and role throughout World War II. Upon being fully restored, will be featured alongside the Wargaming.net Interpretation Zone.
Some readers may recall that on February 28, in order to celebrate the Wargaming.net Interpretation Zone, Wargaming and the RAF Museum launched a mobile application called Apparition, which allowed users to utilize augmented reality in order to view a virtual version of the aircraft flying over the museum.
Tracy Spaight, Wargaming’s Special Projects Director, stated, “Offering people around the world to participate in each step of the Dornier Do17 renovation process has been a truly gratifying experience. As a company heavily invested in the preservation of military history, we feel it’s important to show our gratitude and appreciation towards these unique relics.“
If you live in the UK, will you be paying a visit to the exhibit once it is complete?
