Heinkel He 219 recovered in Denmark

The wreck of a Heinkel He 219 Uhu nightfighter was recovered off the Danish coast on Monday, April 23. The aircraft was lying under ten feet of water in the Tannis Bay. The Heinkel He 219 was solely used by the Germans in World War Two and incoporated what was then advanced technology.

Although nearly 300 were built, only one survivor is known, and is preserved at the Smithonian Air & Space Museum in Washington.
