    May I ask was the pilot buried in this war grave?

  • No, they did’t found any bones from humans after they found the wreck. Maybe the crew had a problem with the engine and did a safe landing.

    It’s ironic that something designed to be in the air is now forever under water.

  • Your impression is right but not rare. Beside planes you will find several other things under water.
