Recovery operation of a Vickers Wellington bomber from Dutch lakebed

In 2016 the Dutch Defense Ministry ordered the recovery and removal of a Vickers Wellington bomber that crashed there during WW2.
They hired a specialist company to make the crash site accessible, since the aircraft crashed in the middle of a lake.
I have been following this operation, hoping they would put more effort into recovering those that fell and bringing home their remains.
This video was made by the company that carried out the works, who came-up with a very Dutch solution for the watery problem.


RIP Polish heroes.
