A rare discovery on the island of Fleves

Hi,
Fleves is an uninhabited little island in the Saronic Gulf, off Vouliagmeni Bay. During the German occupation there was a costal artillery unit there. A friend and researcher from Athens explored the islet, took a lot of pics from the remnants of the German facilities there, but the best of all are the pieces he found from a Ju 52 See.

It is about a see plane of Seetransportstaffel 1 which crashlandet there on the 11.06.44.


FF. Ogfr. Erich Buch und 2 Mann der Besatzung (+), unfreiwillige Bodenberührung Insel Fleves; noch 10 Fluggäste (Kretaurlauber) tot, dabei waren die Offiziere Oblt. Kurt Pechtl, Chef Krftf.Kp.und Oblt. Artur Riedel, Chef vom Sperrwaffen Kdo. Leros
