WWII Plane Recovered From Black Sea After Crashing 77 Years Ago(Photos)

The remains of a Second World War-era Bell P-39 Airacobra fighter aircraft have been pulled from the Black Sea.

The plane was hauled from the water in the Kalamita Bay, near the village of

Novofyodorovka, Crimea, as part of a joint expedition of the Russian Geographical Society and the Russian Defence Ministry.

The aircraft had entered service with the

BlackSea Fleet in 1943 but was forced to make a water landing just one year later due to a technical malfunction during a training flight.
