This old warplane has been at the bottom of Hafrsfjord for
70 years, and was brought to the surface near Sola Air Museum over the weekend.
Some of my photographs are now in both a local and a National newspaper.
Take a look at the links.

How very cool! I just showed the picture to Kjell and he said he saw it this morning in Dagbladet. He reads the paper every morning on line. :) Now he knows who took the picture, too. :)) Congratulations!

The plane is in great shape for being submerged for 70 years.
