    Default Crash site Baltic sea

    Hallo! today im quite happy ! Yesterday myfriends and i found a airoplane when diving in South of Baltic sea.
    The plane has probably gone down hard though its scatterd on a large area.
    The only ammo we found was (8mm?) was marked IM DA 1943.
    We saw two ,maybe three 6 in a row cylinders engines.
    Can anyone spred some light over our find ?
    Underwater pic coming!

    Hi Lars, welcome to the forum!

    Your finds are from a British aircraft.

    The ammo looks like .303

    The AM (Air Ministry) marked film spool confirms the aircraft as British.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Do the authorities know about this? They may want to raise it or something.

    The film spool is from a G45 Gun Camera. This was used in many RAF aircraft. From the lack of metal fuselage panels/stringers in the few photo's shown, I would hazard a guess at it possibly being a lend / lease Hawker Hurricane, but better photo's are needed.

    could you draw us a site plan?

    It may help to determine the possible size of the craft in question.

    Did you say there were several engines?
    We saw two ,maybe three 6 in a row cylinders engines.
    That would imply a bomber, possibly a Lancaster. The authorities might be interested particularly if it was missing in action.

    Swedish authorities have ben told about it. Do you think British autorities would be interested.
    This is a unknown crashsite. No old local stories of a plane going down in this area.

    Lanc's didn't have G45 Gun Cameras, I think Lars may be refering to just cylinders from a smashed engine case. Whatever, a lot more better photo's are required to get anywhere near an ID on this airframe unless someone can tell what the stamped grey plate has come off.
