This amazing restoration job took place in Russia. A salvage and restoration company dredged a lake in the North West, near Finland, and this is what they found. We think this is pretty awesome – the fighter had been there for years, probably as a result of the Second World War (‘The Great Patriotic War’, if you’re Russian). The company working on the restoration raised it up and got to work on it. The results are incredible!
Having found the plane, divers went down to it and attached inflatable rings (like life-preservers/arm-bands), and inflated them. The plane then rose to the surface, and they lifted it out on a crane.
