After the recovery of a rare Heinkel He 219 in Denmark in April, a just-as-rare German Heinkel He 115 floatplane has been recovered from the sea near Stavanger in Norway. The aircraft was lying on its back under 60 ft of water since World War II. Although it appears to be in a remarkable state of preservation, precaution will have to be taken to ensure corrosion does not set in now that the aircraft is out of the water.
