Russian war relic hunters have been lucky enough to find, near Saint Petersburg, half-buried the remains of a German Junkers Ju-88A-4 bomber, a variant with extra wingspan and an improved launch system of bombs. Let us remember that that place was the scene of one of the largest and most brutal battles of the Second World War, with more than 1.6 million fallen combatants and more than one million dead civilians. A Russian YouTube channel published yesterday the video of the discovery:

You can see some screenshots of the video below. Here one of the crew seats:
