Stuka Found




A rare, well-preserved German World War II bomber has been found in Croatia's central Adriatic more than seven decades after it was shot down, the national conservation institute said.

The wreckage of the Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (Sturzkampfflugzeug) 'dive bomber' was discovered not far from the southern coast of the island of Zirje, institute official Igor Miholjek told a news agency.

Only two bombers of that type, out of some 5,700 that were produced, have been preserved and are now on show in London and Chicago, according to the institute.



German Graves Found




Still wearing their boots and helmets, and carrying their weapons, the bodies of German soldiers who died in the Battle of the Seelow Heights have finally been unearthed.

A team of archaeologists - the Association for the Recovery of the Fallen - have uncovered the skeletons of men who died defending Berlin from the soldiers of the Red Army in the final days of the Second World War.
