    I hope they can identify the pilot. He should finally go home.

    Amazing, I am glad they found another one and he will finally get laid to rest. :salute:

    I dont care what side they fought for, all missing soldiers deserve to be found and come home....German, US, British, Italian, Japanese, etc...

    :salute: to them all.

    As for the aircraft they are found all over here still believe it or not. The airfields that we use today for our helicopters were all former WW2 German luftwaffe airbases and they excavate during construction and find underground bunkers and hangers with planes still sitting on there landing gear.

    It would be good if the Bf-109 could be restored even to display condition with the name of the pilot listed on a plaque near the aircraft. Indoors display to protect it from the elements...

    Thanks sounds good those pictures. I had been under the impression that it was largely intact. Guess I was wrong. I thought it was just parked there as nobody did say where it actually was.

    In the beginning of the thread they said they found it crashed 20 feet under the ground. You got to read all the posts.
