WWII Fighter Plane Salvaged Perfectly Intact from the Depths

On 1 November 2006, a Fw 190A3 was salvaged from the depths off the island of Sotra, near Bergen, Norway. The aircraft had made an emergency landing in December 1943; the pilot had scrambled to safety and was rescued soon after, but his aircraft had sunk to the bottom of the sea. After its retrieval from its 60 m deep watery grave, the Fw 190 ‘Yellow 16,’ from IV/JG 5 appears to be in remarkably good condition, only missing its canopy and the fabric-covered wing and tail surfaces.
