Stuka bomber wreck being recovered from Baltic
Berlin: A German military museum is preparing to hoist the wreck of a Stuka dive bomber from the floor of the Baltic Sea, a rare remaining example of the plane that once wreaked havoc over Europe as part of the Nazis` war machine.
The Stuka wreck, first discovered in the 90s when a fisherman`s net snagged on it, lies about 10 kilometres off the coast of the Baltic island of Ruegen, in about 18 metres of water.
German military divers have been working for a week to prepare the main body to be hoisted to the surface, and initial reports are that it is in good condition. The motor was brought up over the weekend.
The German Military Historical Museum says it will be restored and put on display in Berlin.
