Former German pilot on flying WWII Dornier 17 aircraft

Work begins on Friday to raise a unique German World War II aircraft from the floor of the English Channel just off the Kent coast.

The Dornier 17 aircraft is the last of its kind, and lies in 50ft of water on the Goodwin Sands.

Former pilot Gerhard Krems is the last man alive to have flown a Dornier.

Mr Krems spoke to BBC News about his memories of the aircraft.
