Divers find fragment of WWII US bomber

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

ALSIB (the Northern Trace) air road historian in Siberia has described the find as ‘an incredible stroke of luck’. 

‘This find is of top importance for us, it means there is hope for the heaviest parts of the aircraft to still be in underwater pits relatively close to the crash site. We needed this small fragment to prove that we were on the right path.

The plane with four crew on board crashed in April 1943 near Krasnoyarsk railway bridge. The current multi-stage search operation for aircraft fragments using modern diving equipment was organised by Alexander Matveev, a member of the Russian Geographical Society, head of the "Trassa" search unit of the Siberian Federal University’s Military Engineering Institute.

‘The search will continue. We are doing it to immortalise names of four young lads who did not reach the front line’, said historian Vyacheslav Filippov.
