Aviation Archaeology is the study of airplane wrecks, or the remains of airfields and other aviation related items. Although most recoveries are being made of WW2 wrecks, there are interesting searches towards post or pre war accidents. This Bulletin might give you the latest details on this subject.

Very interesting article and a new [page to be bookmarked for sure.

A bit unsure about the plane being sunk at an airshow in 1945. Do you think it was more of a technical trial rather than a traditional airshow?

Have any of you read through many of the UK magazine " Fly Past" ? many recoveries in progress.......

we are covering one soon in central Germany of a crashed Fw 190A-8/R-2 in which many of pieces are in incredible shape including the blue-black engine cowling and much of the engine.
