    Default Lost bomber SB 2 found in Russia

    Found this today on Englishrussia.com I think people here will enjoy this story and pictures.

    Recently in taiga there were found the remains of a Soviet bomber. On 17th December 1939 approximately at 9.00-9.05 this bomber by extreme necessity took off from the airdrome Yagodnik 17 km from Arkhangelsk along the Northern Dvina river. The aid of the bomber was needed for destruction of the Finnish fortification. The weather on that day was awful and at 9.22 the bomber with four crew members aboard ran into the forest…

    Today it is hard to reveal the cause of the wreckage. Perhaps they are quite usual - the range of circumstances: adverse weather conditions, bad pilot control, icing or maybe technical causes … However the fact is that the bomber stroke against the crowns of the trees and burst into pieces by the trunks as if it was made of paper… To tatters… In shreds…

    Could be wrong, but it sure looks like an SB2M-100A medium bomber.

    are they sure it was paper?, how could paper last that long, canvas, well maybe, but it sure is in good shape to have happened in 39? plus I see rivets all over it?

    I think the translation meant to mean that "the aircraft was torn to pieces as if it were made of paper", not that it was made of paper. If it is in an area that doesn't get many fires through it, painted metal objects can remain remarkably well preserved.
