Wow! Thanks so much for posting these photographs! Fascinating stuff, and a very well executed recovery operation by the looks of things. I still can't believe how well she is preserved!

Cheers,
Richard

Wow! She's a mess inside, but the exterior looks in pretty good shape. Took me a while to work out she was upside down... Was surprised to see the frogman standing on the wing, would have thought that was relying a lot on a structure weakened by 70 years of salt corrosion.

Thanks for posting!
