Found this on Scottish site, should it have been lifted .

AN eagle-eyed Scottish fisherman has found the engine of a German bomber that lay unsuspected at the bottom of a harbour for 75 years.

The engine, with propeller still attached, is believed to belong to one of the Junkers Ju 88 which raided the north-east of Scotland in 1941.

One of the bombers was shot down and it is now seems certain the engine crashed near the harbour at Portknockie, Moray, where three civilians died in a raid.

Remarkably, fisherman and diving enthusiast Brian Donaldson spotted the engine whilst completing a dive to the ocean bed at Cullen Bay near Portknockie. He then towed it to shore.

all answers done now ;)

would leaving it enhance the experience of seeing it? is he just going to stick it in a barn to corrode ?

For me leaving it in place would be the right answer, but that's just me.
