Schoolboy Discovers WW2 Fighter Plane For History Project

Schoolboy Discovers WW2 Fighter Plane For History Project

Danish schoolboy Daniel Rom Kristiansen was studying World War Two when he was told by his grandfather to go and find a plane that had crashed near his house over 70 years ago.

Armed with a metal detector, Daniel and his dad set off to the field expecting to find nothing than a few pieces of metal.

What they found were the remains of a German Messerschmiit plane and the skeleton of the pilot who flew it, too.

Initially, it was just the excited beeping of the metal detector, but as they dug, they realised they'd have to go in deeper.

They borrowed an excavator from a neighbour, and four to six metres down the plane revealed itself.

Daniel's father said: "It was maybe 2,000-5,000 pieces of a plane to begin with.

"And we found a motor... then suddenly we found parts of bones, and parts from [the pilot's] clothes.

"[We] found some personal things - books, a wallet with money... either it was a little bible or it was Mein Kampf [Hitler's autobiographical account] - a book in his pocket."

Many in the local area were led to believe that the plane had been removed many years ago.

The site has now been taken over by the local police, and the Historical Museum of Northern Jutland has taken possession of the artefacts and papers.

Together they hope to be able to establish the man's identity and if there is any profound meaning in the papers.

A name for the man, believed to be training in nearby Aalborg at the time of the incident, is close to being confirmed with the hope of a funeral in Germany soon.
