For fans of the Luftwaffe, here are some shots of an FW-190 fighter being pulled from the ocean, off the coast of Norway. It ditched in the water because of technical problems in flight:

Lots of photos (http://www.luftwaffe.no/wreck/index.htm)

Saw that last week. Pretty cool.

Also not long ago, a Ju87 was recovered off the coast of Greece after a fishing trawler caught it in its nets.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Here is the story concerning it:

By: ??ivind Ask
Published: 01. Nov. 2006, 06:00

Some facts
December 15th, 1943 the German FE-190 A2 Yellow 16 made an emergency landing between Langemura and Little V??r??na at Solsvik. It was found last year by the Naval vessel ???Tyr???. It will be recovered today. The plane originally served with Staffel 12 at Herdla. After conservation, the plane will be returned to Herdla war museum.


up into the light after 63 years

The FW 190 that crashed near Solsvik in 1943 is being recovered. Entusiasts has worked quietly for years with the plans.

The whole thing started in 1995 in connection whit the 50 year anniversary of the peace on 1945, the local historian Martha Ekerhovd learned that there was a German plane in the sea outside Solsvik. It had crashed there during the war. In 1995 she was the principal at Misje school. She wanted to know more about the plane, and got more information from her uncle, Johannes Misje, and Jakob Langeland, bout who had heard the story from those involved back then in 1943.

Finding expertise

Martha got in contact with Svein Ove Agdestein, who she knew as an airplane enthusiast, and the ball started rolling. The two of them rose the interest of Halvor Sperbund, Ivar Nordland, Geir Tangen, Olav Helvig and Ole Bj??rn S??lensminde, all of them with a solid interest in war history.

This was the start of Work-group FW 190 A2 ??? Yellow 16, with the aim of finding and recovering the plane who had been a part of Staffel 12 at Herdla. The first search was in 1995/96 and again in 2004, but without luck. Last summer, they got help from the naval vessel ???Tyr???. They found the plane at first attempt, at 60 meter (180 ft) depth.


Controlled emergency landing

Eye-witneses from back then told that the pilot followed the plane into the depth, but managed to get loose and reached the surface, where he was saved by two local fishermen.

- How far the pilot followed the plane down is unknown, but it could hardly have been all 60 meters, says airplane mechanic Halvor Sperbund. The pilot had obviously made a controlled emergency landing, we can see that from the underwater photos, Sperbund explains. The photos shows damage to the tail.

- The pilot was strapped in well, but could loosen the harness with a simple knocking to the lock. Then he would have had to wiggle free of the cockpit and the seat after the plane had tuched down on water. He must have blown of the hood prior to landing, it is nowhere to be found. After getting free of the plane, he could have triggered the gas-cartridge for his life-west which would have brought him to the surface rather quickly, Sperbund continues.
The machine had not been in combat. The pictures taken by ???Tyr??? show the gun covers over the canons being in place.

The plane was sitting in a steep underwater rocky slope at 40 degrees, nose downwards. The machine is in exceptionally. The project group have held the cards close to their chest all the time, fearing divers would learn about the wreck and plundering it.


@ Realjambo
If you think that is bad, check this out. Pretty eerie.
