    Interesting. Judging by the lighting it seems to be relatively shallow. I does look like an 88.

    In theory, there's a possibility of raise and restore it as far as the airframe structure is concerned?

    Great stuff Dominik! Obviously I can't be certain, but from the remains, and the wing plan in particular, I'm guessing a Ju88A-5 or A-4 maybe?

    Looks pretty well deteriorated...

    The passage of time has not been kind to these wrecks being found recently :(

    Great find though, thanks for posting the video! :thumbleft:

    Great find Dominik! I'm also thinking Ju 88A-4/5. Not a 188 in any case.
