In this post, we will show some pictures of the parts that are now in place in the cockpit.

Behind everything that is now mounted in the cockpit is a lot of work that the pictures can not make visible. This applies to both work with electrical components, work with instruments, as well as work with photos and documentation.

In addition to the work on the cockpit and the Pulpit, we have also begun to prepare what we will have to do with the center section in the years to come..

It is a guiding principle that we should as far as possible utilize all the original parts that we found in the plane when it was raised in 2012. At the same time, we try as far as possible to make things work again.

We all wish you a good summer…

The year 2020

The year 2020 was a good year for Heinkel 115 the project through which many positive things have happened.

We have for several years had restrictions on the type of work we could do on the plane. During the past year, the Armed Forces Museums have largely been abolished these restrictions.

It formerly Heinkel 115 the steering group has been closed down. As a replacement for this a support group has been established with members from the Friends' Association, as well as two conservators engaged by the Jærmuseet. This solution gives us that working with the aircraft an easy access to a very versatile experience and competence.

It also in over the past year there has been a unanimous understanding that it can be necessary to make some interventions on the center section. This mainly applies to supporting beams, with associated attachments for wings and floats. This has led to it now is working to find solutions for how such work can be completed. Our goal is still to make small interventions and preserve as much as possible much of this section.

It has Throughout the year, work has been done on a number of different sub-projects. I de cases where equipment is completely destroyed, we integrate what may be left of the original equipment in the new one being built.

An example is the work that has now been completed to build a new hydraulic hand pump for flap and opening of bomb hatches etc.. Of the original pump, only handles remained, mechanical transfer to stamps, pistons and end caps. Said parts are built of high-quality materials and had done well down on the fjord bottom. All the pump housing and cylinders, on the other hand, were almost completely corroded.  Pump housings and cylinders have now been rebuilt and the pump can now again be used to pump oil. The above mentioned remaining parts have been integrated in the new pump.  

It is also throughout the year made a new instrument panel for the cockpit. Although most of the original panel was gone when the plane was lifted, will still the new panel be equipped with original instruments. These are instruments that were found in the aircraft and which has now been preserved and in some cases partially rebuilt.

Through At the same time, we have gained a good overview of the work with the instruments which instruments and other similar equipment have been in the cockpit of the aircraft and nasal section.

Another of the bigger things that have been done through 2020 is the work of rebuilding the system for suspension and transmissions from the rudder and toe pedals. Also here is remaining original parts have been integrated into the new finished product.

It has also become worked hard to preserve original electrical equipment. These are things like circuit breakers, switches, terminal blocks and many other smaller electrical components. The work is a time-consuming work of patience that is now really beginning to show again in form of finished preserved parts. These have either already been reassembled in the plane, or in stock ready for use..

The big and extensive cableway along the port side of the cockpit was also completed early in 2020

The outer the section of one engine stand was completely missing when the plane was lifted in June 2012. This is because one engine was salvaged before the plane sank in December 1942. It the missing section has been rebuilt during the autumn. At the same time, we have what we have of original brackets and other equipment for the motor brackets have been reassembled on the engine jacks.

Photo sharing archive and documentation is a time-consuming task that runs as long as the project ongoing. It is also through 2020 been working a lot on these things.

When the plane was raised in June 2012 a few smaller parts were left at the site. It was last year, several ROV dives were made at the crash site in Hafsfjord. Although the plane was unusually complete sea ​​wreck to be, also missing our plane things that can not be found elsewhere. A new application has therefore been sent to raise He 115 parts from Limingen.


Efforts Heinkel He 115 has been going on all summer without the usual break that the participants' summer holidays tend to bring. Such has also we have been influenced by Covid 19.

Much work has been done to create a new instrument panel cockpit. We have only a few cm of the original panel2 left off. Even if the panel is new, it will still be filled up by the original instruments who was on the plane the day it crashed.

A lot of impressive work has also been done to recreate parts for suspension of side rudder pedals, both for pilot and for navigator. Some of the parts of this large system were almost completely gone when the plane was lifted . Again has managed in a good way to intrigue some new parts in among the many originals parts.  

A curiosity is that it has managed to get light in again the hand lamp that was placed in a box in the back of the telegraph operator cockpit.

Work is also currently underway to make new the missing parts to one engine stand.  These are parts which we are missing since one engine and both floats were salvaged right after that the plane had crashed.

It is also gratifying that we will soon be able to continue the work to repair the corrosion damage in the supporting beams in the center section. The idea is to do necessary interventions to preserve the residual strength of the load-bearing structure, and in a as far as it is justifiable, to preserve the rest of the center section. The idea behind this approach is to be able to preserve as much of it as possible center section as original.

Over time, we have searched extensively for information on an instrument with a associated system that was located on the starboard side of the Kanzel. We have now received a great and informative answer from Armin Züger in Helsinki. He had read our request in a previous post on this website, se link; http://heinkel115.com/2020-06-11/?lang=en

Attached you can read Armin`s answer.

 There was some open questions about a so-far unknown instrument, related to torpedos.

There is an operation manual: D.(air)T. 7212  "Description, Operation and maintenance of the PVC drop weapon 1006 A“ (which I have attached as a pdf document) that might shed a bit more light in this.

In the picture there some words “Scharf Torpedo Fallschirmlot Blind” on the unknown instrument.

“Scharf” and ”Blind” means basically “disarmed” and “armed” (i.e

Mixed,options applicable to his clinical condition and the related sildenafil dosage.

. defining if the torpedo will explode or not explode finally).

“Fallschirmlot” is another expression for Luftmine (parachute mine, LMA and LMB ), you will find this also in the manual

Now the interesting part:

The document contains also a schematic picture of a He 111 cockpit. There is one lever named BlindScharfhebel. And I guess this is what the unknown mechanism of your He 115 is. It’s a lever to arm/disarm the torpedo (in case of the He 115 maybe combined with some other functionality).


It has been done a lot of work on the nose and cockpit sections since our last status update. Much of this work is cleaning and preserving parts like we do previously taken out from the nose and cockpit. This is work that requires a lot of work both patience and courage

contraindications to specific oral drugs or who experiencesexual problems. cheap viagra online.

. It is therefore gratifying to see how good results achieved. An example is:. the fuse line that was mounted during the pilot's port foot rests.  These were basically full of rust and sediment residues, but a patient effort has led to several of these now in functional condition. The fuses are along with several larger terminal blocks now mounted back in port cable gates.

Another great work that has now been done is to create new all the big and complex the cableway that runs along the port side of the cockpit. Of the original cableway we had only a very small bit left. Therefore, it became a major challenge both to find out what the cable street looked like, and then to make a credible one copy of this. Both have succeeded very well thanks to a solid piece of professional work.  Since we want to preserve so much of the originality as possible, is the bit we had left of the original cable street, been integrated into the newly created street.

There are also more places to come of the parts removed from the cockpit and nose 2014. Of these,. mentioned footrests, first fuck, a hydraulic cylinder and the navigator's folding seat. The retrofitting of the hot air system is also complete. That is as far as may have been used original pipes found when the cockpit and nose were emptied 2014.

It's working also by reconstructing what we lack of parts for suspension of siders pedals, and to create a new cockpit dashboard. To this last, we are so lucky to have finished preserving the original instruments.

Finally, have to It is mentioned that work is also being done on the last of the motorbikes. Here everything must go brackets are cleaned and reassembled as they were before dismantling winter 2015.

Unfortunately, the work on the aircraft is still hampered by an ongoing process of responsibility and ownership.

Before cleaning, the fuses that have been in the cable gates under the port saw foot rests like this.

Winter cold has really put himself and made everything work out in the Heinkel hall to an unpleasant experience. We have therefore chosen to continue to work inside the workshop, where the temperature is a little more to live with. Efforts to restore the starboard elevator is well underway, and work is now rebuilding this

We have now passed the milestone it is to have been hoisted the outer wing panels into upright position. It is a comprehensive work that lies behind the wing panels now are safe, and that we now have access to both over and under the sides of these. Besides the work of creating the necessary supports to have wings standing in, was the first day of lifting both unnecessarily heavy and a little more exciting than necessary
. Here it must be seized, and business Otic AS, Tananger, were asked for help, and they asked more than benevolent up and lent us the necessary lifting equipment, adapted to the work we should do.

Again, the local business set up and helped us.

We are now in the process of making two racks that we can save the center section hanging in

. The center section is larger and heavier than each of the wing panels, and it is therefore greater demands on racks that we will build. We will again use threads for wing nuts to fix the center section toward the racks. The idea is that the racks will fill several functions. Now is the center section horizontal underside up. The need in the near future turned 180 ° so that we also have access to work with the top side. It may also be necessary to save the standing upright. One last feature racks should be used to, is in case of an transport, wherein the center section must be able to hang in the stand at a 45 ° angle.

Concurrent with the work out in concrete hall, efforts are more things inside the workshop. Among other things, working to get open and close mechanisms, for the rungs in the center section ahead list, to function properly again. One motor bracket is dismounted from the center section, and should be part of an exhibition, where one of the aircraft propeller, the rebuilt engine, engine cover and motor buck displayed.


In the past week, we've continued to wash and clean the larger parts of the wings and center section. It has also been dismantled some equipment of the center section that belonged to the starboard engine.

The major challenge is that time is not on our side, and the urgency to get both wings and center section off the floor, and stored so that we can access from both sides. This will make it easier to gain access to some of the interior rooms
. The plan is to use the wing nuts to screw sections fixed to steel frames, adapted to this task

It is simultaneously working inside the workshop to assemble the parts of the plane's engine, which can still be used, together with parts from other BMW 132 engines that the museum has had in stock.

Torkel Tan Jorgensen began immediately to work to dismantle the engine to clean this for salt and corrosion products

. This work continued throughout the fall and winter. The stay fjord has left its mark on the engine block and gearbox, but fortunately, many of the remaining parts in a good condition.


Propeller system is "very" good condition, and it is necessary to dismantle the hub and if possible to get the pitch control to work again.

We lack the special crank- and the gear housing where this model was equipped with. Further work with the engine is therefore dependent on a decision on how to tackle the problem of disparities between the parts we have at our disposal, and the objective of the original.
