    It's been a while since i have been active on this forum, so i thought i might make it up to you guys and post this:

    When i was younger i was told that a German fighter got shot down and crashed on the island of "Toska"(Which happens to be my homeplace) and right before the summer vacation started i bought myself a metal detector and i tried to search if there were any remains of the fighter.

    Everybody who saw the crash said there was nothing left of it. Most of the big parts had been taken away, but i thought i might search after all.

    The first couple days i only found junk, and i couldn't go to the crashsite because there were cows there blocking everywhere(Not that i am afraid of cows, but they were really annoying, they washed my pants with their tung, and went in my way all the time, they even tried eating my spade!). When the cows had finally been taken away from the field, i started searching, but i found nothing, then a good friend of mine who had also seen the plane go down pointed towards where he thought the plane had crashed, and he was right! The time i spend digging there was a sucsess, i found lots of parts, they were pretty rusted, but it was better than nothing.

    If you have read all this without getting bored, here is your reward:

    Hope you manage to find a bit or some info to positively ID the aircraft - looking forward to seeing more, good luck.
