A warplane graveyard: 50 German Focke-Wulfs that disappeared after WWII are ‘found wrapped in sheets buried under an old Turkish airport’


A Turkish military enthusiast has claimed he has found the final resting place of 50 German Second World War fighters donated by Hitler in 1943 in a bid to encourage Ankara to join the Axis powers. The Focke-Wulf FW-190s were handed over to the Turkish air force who had only about 300 pilots at the outbreak of hostilities.
