These two German 88s were dug up during the construction work at the old USAF Rhein Main Air Base in Frankfurt. They, along with German 'planes, and other junk, were buried right after the war and rediscovered during the expansion of the civil airport into the former USAF 'Gateway to Europe' airbase, which was opposite the civil airport. One of the 88s looks to be in a good state of preservation, the other has had its muzzle blocked and blown off in order to render it useless. I wonder if anyone knows what happened to these pieces. Were they saved for a local museum or are they displayed at the Frankfurt airport?
