Excavation Underway After Danish Schoolboy Discovers WW2 Messerschmitt Bf 109 Wreck
A schoolboy has discovered the remains of a Messerschmitt Bf 109 and its pilot in the North Jutland town of Birkelse, Denmark. After receiving a homework assignment about WW2, Daniel Rom Kristiansen’s father, Klaus, jokingly suggested locating an aircraft that supposedly crashed in the field behind their farm during WW2. Over the weekend, the pair took a metal detector to the area to investigate the claim, originally made by Klaus’ grandfather, and began turning up bits of wreckage.
