Turns Out the Wreck Is a JU88

From the June 15, 2012 Fox News "WWII plane wreck not a Stuka but larger JU88."

A plane wreck was found in the Baltic Sea and turned out to be a twin engine JU88 which shared parts with the Stuka JU87.

The Stuka was a better-known plane but the Germans had far more JU88s.  There are very few remaining examples of the JU88. One is in the RAF Museum in England.

This plane will eventually be displayed at the German Historical Museum's Air Force Museum at the former Gatow Airport in Berlin.
