Focke-Wulf Fw 190 warplane!
Our next favorite metal detecting find is this Focke-Wulf Fw 190 warplane, found by DUTCH DIGGERS in Germany.
They wrote: “You hear a lot of old stories from WW2. Often you get no or hardly the right information you need. And it is often a gamble whether it is true. This is also a story that gave us a lot of reasons to doubt. A crashed German plane somewhere in the woods. After some research with a lot of documents, we got the exact location. Research revealed a Focke 190-Wulf Fw plane. Parts of the chassis, motor and, ultimately, a wing of a Focke 190-Wulf Fw. Very rare objects!”
Informations (Wikipedia.org): “The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (English: Shrike) is a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II. Along with its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 became the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s Jagdwaffe (Fighter Force). The twin-row BMW 801 radial engine that powered most operational versions enabled the Fw 190 to lift larger loads than the Bf 109, allowing its use as a day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree, night fighter.”
They are using the Garrett AT Pro metal detector.
