    Let's hope they can actually raise it this time around. The aircraft was first discovered in 2003. Efforts were made to recover it, but ultimately failed to come about.

    The P-40 is one of the later E models that was sent to the AVG, not one of the earlier B\C models they were originally equipped with.

    Given the reports that it dived into the lake, I am curious as to the overall condition of the wreck.
