Junker JU52 3M


Outside the island of Kea in Greece, a wreck of a German Junker 52 from the Second World War was found in 2009. After work in archive material and wreck surveys, where also the construction number Werks# 6590 was found, they discovered that the airplane had belonged to the German Transport Geschwader 4 under command of Oberst Richard Kupshus. Due to fuel problems she was deliberately sunk 6. September 1943. The wreck rest today outside the harbor at St. Niccolo on Kea on a depth of 60 to 68 meter.
