Piroscafo colpito da Beaufighter 02.09.1943

Recommended Posts

Dopo tre anni che cercavo il Virginia, ho raccolto svariate storie su quasi tutto quello che c'era nel golfo di Trieste. 

Un sommozzatore da Trieste mi ha mandato anche il video del recupero della caldaia. Se erro, MEA CULPA MAXIMA.

Lo smonto dal telefono e lo metto sul canale Youtube dove carichiamo lo stato attuale dei relitti intorno a Pirano e Salvore.

Il video sullo stato attuale dei resti non l'ho ancora fatto.

Le condizioni di visibilità non sono ancora fra le migliori. Bisogna aspettare l'inverno.

Faremo anche la misurazione esatta dei resti. Se l'ampiezza dello scafo è di 10 m, ogni dubbio sarà levato.

Cordiali saluti.

A book i highly recommend is...

Bristol Beaufighter, author Jerry Scutts. Published 2004 by the Crowood Press, ISBN 1 86126 666 9 in English. OOP. In English.

A most versatile and feared fighter, unless and until it was armed with torpedoes or rockets.

For some obscure and irrational reason most believe it was a bomber. Maybe the clue is in the name.

This fighter could easily be inverted whilst in flight but would invariably crash. That is pretty pointless. Some were lost in these circumstances with three crew. Draw your own conclusions. Bravado, boredom or both. The line between daring and death is very fine.
