    Lost at sea and stranded in the Lofjord in Norway sometime in the last years of the war. The dockport was lost during transport from a mechanic verft in Ã…senfjorden.The dockport was heading for Trondheim, and the german uboat bunker "Dora". Today the remains can be seen in the remote shore of the Lofjord.

    Nice aerial footage. Must look back my files again to see where the uboat was launched that killed my uncle in '41.

    Thank you! The u-boat bunkers in Trondheim was not completed in 1941, the "dora 1" was completed in 1943, and "dora 2" was only half-completed by the end of the war. But the germans probably had u-boats stationed in Trondheim before that, so the Uboat you are talking about, may have been launched from Trondheim. I am not sure if the aboundead dock port was ment for "dora 1" or "dora 2".

    I will make a video from the Dora bunkers some time soon, absolutely massive constructions.
