November 12, 2006: German WW2 aircraft is salvaged



Another xoB/WaPo image gives us this Folke Wolf 190 aircraft, being raised off the island of Sotra, Norway. According to the official cap, it made an emergency sea landing in 1943.

According to the Wikipedia entry on the FW-190, it looked more like this before its dunk 63 years ago:

Interesting photo, amazing how much is left of it after 60 years under water.

More photos can be found here.

Great link Nietzman.

I had a Jr High School English teacher, Jim Brown, who was a war corespondent in London and wrote a book called Focke Wulf.

He told of a returning war hero, Sven Johanson from Minnesota, an Ace fighter pilot, addressing the ladies auxiliary of the VFW.
Sven told a harrowing tale of being attacked by a squadron of Focke Wulfs.
"Ya, they vaz everywhere, fockers behind me, fockers above me, fockers below me, fockers all around me. But I fight them off, shoot some down and lucky to get home, you betcha."
After his rousing description of the battle, the Ladies Auxiliary President explained to the group the the fockers were the dreaded Focke Wulf fighters of the Third Reich.
Sven interrupted saying, "No, these fockers were Messerschmitts."

Would Jim Brown lie to me?

The Times ran an article the other day on the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald on Lake Superior. It mentioned that the wreck sight has been made off limits by the Canadian government; the water temp at the depth of the wreck is almost always 33 degrees and their is no marine life so any of the crew members in their watery grave can still be identified, even after 31 years.

Kudos. I was wondering how we'd get to the food drift.

Yeah, but there's only a few rotted bits of wood left of that ship. How about this one: the Vasa, raised from the seabed in Sweden. It sank in 1628, only one century later than the Mary Rose sank. It is so well preserved because of the cold briny water in the Stockholm area.

It also sank brand new.
