Re: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - The Diving Thread

This is where the dive community have shifted opinion.. the brass tells its story in situ, all be it that story is only available to divers and rich folk with ROV’s The issue of raising “trinkets” has rattled on ever since I first donned dive kit back in 2009.

Re: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - The Diving Thread

Then there is the question of items which are not on the wreck itself and cannot necessarily be attributed to said wreck ? What’s the script with those items ? In terms of the North Sea, more often than not you will find an empty shell casing lying in the sand which has either been fired during the ...

Re: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea - The Diving Thread

So where does that leave others wishing to rescue articles from the...

Re: Avro Vulcan XL319

Ste, there would be nowhere to move her to, the former site that was Sunderland airport is now Nissan........wait...... I am getting an idea !
