The BBC has posted a short news item covering the progress to date at the RAF Museum on preserving the Dornier Do 17Z recovered from the North Sea last year.
The airframe has been dismantled and is being sprayed with citric acid to remove corrosion and marine encrustations before restoration can commence in earnest.

An interesting newsreal. I'm hoping they restore to original unit colors, and don't mess with it making her someone she never was. So often, this is the case in museums.
