Remains of lost WWII Lancaster Bomber crew found in Germany

The remains of five missing airmen have been found inside the wreckage of a Lancaster Bomber which crashed during a raid in WWII.

The discovery was made following the work of a team of German historians. Volunteers spent hours digging a muddy field looking for the RAF crew after the witness guided them to the site near Frankfurt.

A Rolls Royce engine and landing gear of the Lancaster bomber was found followed by ‘hundreds’ of fragments of human bones in what would have been the cockpit.
