WWII Heavy Bomber Found In Norwegian Fjord

Handley Page Halifax Went Down In Nearly 600 Feet Of Water

An RAF Handley Page Halifax heavy bomber from WWII has been discovered in nearly 600 feet of water in a Norwegian Fjord by a research team from the Marine Technology Center at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway.

According to a report in Warbird News, the airplane was discovered using a remote-controlled submarine. The scientists said that while the aircraft has been badly corroded by the salt water, there is the potential for a future recovery project.

The Halifax was a four-engine heavy bomber flown by the RAF during the war. The find at the bottom of the fjord is said to be one of only a very few examples of the aircraft that are complete enough for a possible recovery. Two of the other three known examples also were brought to the surface of the ocean following their discovery.
