Wreck Ju 88/188 found in Baltic Sea

Hi All
Interesting link:http://www.divers24.pl/nurkowanie-wr...graf-arctowski

Polish crew hydrographic ship "Arctowski" during the test sonar bottom (Klein 3900) of the Baltic Sea, came across an interesting find. The researchers were able to locate the wreck of the aircraft - bomber, dating from World War II.
Best Regards
Jarek

Re: Wreck Ju 88/188 found in Baltic Sea

Jarek,

Thanks for posting. Have you got a higher resolution picture?
It's not easy to see, but I'm not yet convinced it's a Ju88 or even a 188...
It does look however that this aircraft has a four bladed prop...
I hope you will find more details...

Good luck!
Piet

Hi Piet
In this link you can see more, pictures can be enlarged by clicking.
As for the type of aircraft is the present moment pure speculation Ju 88/188 or B 25
Soon examine wreck divers or specialized equipment, waiting time will tell.

Re: Wreck Ju 88/188 found in Baltic Sea

Jarek,

I've visited the website you referred to and I must say these pictures are of better quality, but it's still difficult to see... Forget what I said about a four bladed prop, because I don't see that in the better pictures... (My mistake)

I have made a comparison of a Junkers Ju88A-4 scale drawing and put it as an overlay over the image of the wreck. The wingspan of the wreckage is about 20 metres, so an A-4 type wing will be a closer comparison than the Ju88 that was originally in the picture. (That was a Ju88A-1 aircraft which had shorter wings, by the way.)

Let's suppose - this is purely hypothetical:
If your wreck is a Junkers Ju88 - you are looking at the wings without the flaps and ailerons - those are missing... My scale drawing is from above, but the wreckage seems a bit tilted 'nose down', or should we say 'engines down' - because there the main weight will be... So that makes it harder to compare the pictures...

So if it's a Ju88, a lot of versions (starting from the A-4 wing type) will be possible... A Ju188 had a wingspan that was even (about) 2 metres larger, so the chance that it was such a type is not likely...

Just my 50 cents, for what it's worth...

Good luck with further investigations..!

Re: Wreck Ju 88/188 found in Baltic Sea

Hi All

Recent studies carried out in January via a robot with a camera resting confirmed the wreck at the bottom of the Baltic that this is Ju 88
The wreck lies at a depth of 25 meters and very good condition.

Re: Wreck Ju 88/188 found in Baltic Sea

Hello,

Wrecks at only 25 m deep are generally in poor condition after ~70 years, too much oxygen in sea, much corrusion and many parts dragged away by nets (I think). But yes its of Ju 88 series, no way yet tell much more from these photos.

Regards
Ed
