I found this big heavy chunk of metal at the exact place where a FW-190 A-3 crashed, and I keep asking myself, what on earth is this thing? It seems to heavy to be a part of the aircraft itself, and I have been told it is shrapnel, but I find that sort of odd. The plane did take a lot of ground fire, but could a big piece like this really get stuck in the plane, survive the crash landing(The plane was 100% destroyed) and stay in the plane all that time?
What is your theory? This is driving me nuts!
I'll post dimensions tomorrow, but it is about 8mm thick and heavy.
