    there still must be some mystery to be solved here, the locals must have buried the 4 engines as they would not have been able to hale them up a mountain and throw them the hole also the remains of the crew men and 2 aircraft colliding leaves a hell of a mess. there still must be fair bit of Do217 up in the hills

    Another incredible find for German WW2 aviation history! The Flying Pencil they recovered from the channel should also make for a real impressive piece when finally put on display!
