Dornier 17 5K+AR Restoration Project

Tue Jul 15, 2014 7:50 pm

A quick question for any screeners around.

I have a couple of shots of the remains of Dornier 5K+AR in its hydration tunnels at RAF Cosford. Although the aircraft is recognisable, the photos aren't A1 quality due to the constant spray of citric solution directed onto the airframe.

Would these stand a chance of acceptance?

Nice shots, interesting subject, but I don't think they'll work here.

Definitely. And quite an interesting snapshot of part of the conservation process. Sounds like they're basically doing a constant passivation spray.

Personally, I think this one might be OK for the DB:

But the quality doesn't look great. If you were to upload it, I'd do so at 1024 pixels. But it's such a unique shot that I'd love to see it accepted.

However, I wouldn't bet on it.

Thanks Guys, yes Vik, it's a constant passivation spray, thats basically why the quality is questionable.

Are you referring to motive or more technical factors? I have seen images of portions of crashed/scrapped aircraft in the db, as well as a small piece of one of the 9/11 aircraft, so I don't see why this would not be okay in general. The composition is a bit awkward, though, so it might be better to crop closer on the fuselage/boom piece.

Somewhat motive, for the crop more than anything, but more technical factors.
