    That is some damage!

    BTW, near Croatian island of Vis the 'new' B-24 is found recently, according to 'Slobodna Dalmacija' newspaper. The exact location is not revealed.

    lots of usable parts actually..steelparts are like new..also knobs and rubberparts..and small parts like that..and that is what we need for our Fw 190 :)
    so when one cant buy parts .. reproduction is not a option..pull another plane from the fjord and see what one can use :)
    hehe
