WW2 bomber found in good condition in the Gulf of Finland

Recommended Posts

it's in excellent condition for a crashed plane, unfortunately recovering aircraft form the ocean is tremendously expensive. It takes years of sitting under a neutralizing spray to pull the salt out of the aluminum and if that isn't done all you wind up with is a pile of white powder.

there is a ocean-salvaged Dornier Do17 in the UK that has been under resto for 4 years but the best ones seem to come out of Fjords in Norway, low salt-low oxygen

The colour side scan picture is fantastic, great what they can pick up these days, just trying to get page translated as it appears as though it could be a good read
