Siegfried Hernes currently working to dismantle and clean those of the aircraft instruments that it has not yet been done something. Although the instruments apparently seems to be in a very poor condition, is Siegfried now still on track to be able to dismantle them and clean them internally. Some of them bear a clear mark of 70 year stay at the bottom of the fjord, while others have managed their remarkably well. A common feature appears to be that the glass and dials and bellows is broken, while the rest of the fine mechanics have fared very well. It will require a great effort both in terms of work, ability to fine motor work and knowledge to be able to put the instruments repaired.
