Very impressive, but one thing that puzzles me the most
 

How come they can drive a tethered drone though the wreck of an aircraft on the sea bed without any problems but I can’t move my vacuum cleaner from one end of the room to the other without the lead snagging on something.  😀

 

Cheers,

No doubt your other half says you just need more practice. It is the usual answer in my house.

She looks in a amazing condition all things considered.  I wonder if there are plans to bring her up.  I also wonder what other as yet undiscovered treasures lie deep in Norwegian fjords.  Two Halifaxes is a pretty good haul, especially as they brought an extinct type back to life, so to speak.  I wonder id there is a Sterling down there somewhere.
