S'Algar Nazi warplane

Post by sonador » January 1st, 2015, 11:37 pm

I came across a photo in the Menorca local online news site which was entitled Nazi Warplane found in sea off S'Algar. There was no other information & I think it was an article from earlier in the year. Does anyone know anything about this? Looked remarkably intact.

I read about that too. It was dornier ( I think) all that was said was that it remarkably intact.

The German war plane was a Junker, JU88 returning from bombing Algeria in February 1943.
The crew survived and were picked up by Mahon fishermen.

The Menorca newspaper article is copied In the Winter edition of Roqueta in the Island News section there are photos and a map along with text covering the recent discovery of the Luftwaffe plane by divers.

In the on-line article there is also a video of the find off the coast near S'Algar :
