    Rescue of a German fighter aircraft of World War II.

    A Focke Wulf 190, German fighter from the second world war will be rised from a deapth of 60 meters in the sea outside Sotra in Hordaland.

    The Aircraft will be rised on the 1st of November, in an operation that is planned to take five hours.

    The aircraft was stationed on the German airfield of Herdla in Asköy, and flew into the sea on 15th of december 1943. The pilot was saved by personel on land.

    The first conservation efforts will be carried out at the Naval Base in Haakonsvern, from November until March next year. After that, the aircraft will be moved to Herdla Museum in Asköy, where it will be restored.

    More than 20.000 of this aircraft type were built during the Second World War.

    Ministry of Sea, civil organizations, private enterprises and enthusiasts have all done their best to help the riseing operation.

    I read last year about a Bv222 flying boat found in a Norwegian fjord which ad been unaccounted for after the was (Bv222 V2 markings:X4+BH) Divers said she was in remarkable condition due to the lack of oxygen deep in Norwegian fjords so hopefully this Fw-190 is the same.

    Cool looking at the crash map, I expected to see alot around Trondheim. That was a major Luftwaffe base.

    Thanks for the link that was interesting.

    I am surprised to see that the Bv222 V2 is not listed as a 1945 wreck ?

    This aircraft was the centre of lots of speculation because it merely vanished after the War. The was a web link to the discovery of her wreck so I shall attempt to find it and post it.

    Interesting site thanks V2.

    That is amazing, must be very cold water for there doesnt look to be very much vegitation or marine growth at all, just sediment from the look of it. It would be very interesting to see what it looks like with all that mud washed off. Even the markings look untouched.

    You have to give the divers credit also. The amount of pressure and force used to lift this off the lake bottom without damage is awesume. Usually something breaks off with a lift of this type especially after probably 60 years on the lake bottom.
