Four years ago, a Canadian Halifax HR871 was discovered on the bottom of the sea off the coast of southern Sweden near Falsterbo. It had been there since 1943, when its crew abandoned it during bad weather while on a raid into Nazi territory. Next week, Swedish and Canadian divers will begin an operation to recover the plane.
