Armed Forces Museums have for some time placed some restrictions on what types of work as we were able to do on the plane. These restrictions have now been lifted, and we can now continue the collaboration with the Jær Museum on the further work on the aircraft.

Pending that the said restrictions should be lifted we have continued to work clean and preserve parts as in 2014- 2015 took off from the aircraft cockpit and nose section. During this past winter season has several of these parts been reassembled in the aircraft. Large parts have also been reconstructed as was completely corroded when the plane was salvaged 2012.

Now is exhibition season again in progress, and the cockpit and nose sections are rolled out from the workshop and into the exhibition hall. Here it must stand the exhibition season is over again. Then it will be re-entered the workshop again.

It's working continue to finish outstanding work on the objects that have become preserved or made new through the winter season. In summary, it is quite clear that there has been a lot of positive things over the last six months plane.

We have been working on the aircraft ever since 2012 began to get acquainted with the aircraft and its equipment. Nevertheless, new questions about equipment are constantly emerging that we do not fully understand what has been used. Since we now work extensively with Kanzel and the cockpit sections, the most equipment that has stood here we are concerned about. By studying images from the days after the uplift, we have become aware of an instrument that has been linked to the insight and triggering of the torpedo. So far we have not been able to finally identify which instrument this has been. Attached are pictures taken by the instrument in June 2012.
