    That day of July 1943 were shoot down two Gigant that come from Sardinian bound to Elba isle.
    They were loaded of men, both Germans and Italians and many were the deads.
    After seventy years under water to find the engines is the maximun to expect.

    If there were soldiers on board they wont be allowed to lift it, it will be classed as a war grave

    And rightly so, the fallen should be allowed to rest in peace.

    Finding out that it was carrying troops puts the discovery in a very different light for me.

    I was all eager for it to be hauled up, but not now.

    Respect to all who died there.

    Interesting find, but there wont be much left as stated.
    Should be left in situ if a grave.

    althought theres more left than i expected i would imagine recovery is still out of the question due to the condition and cost let along the fact its a war grave
