WWII Aircraft Lost at Sea

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The Maltese archipelago’s geographical position in the Mediterranean Sea was of important strategic significance during WWII. The Siege of Malta from 1940-42 saw the air forces of Germany and Italy combine in a sustained campaign to destroy Malta’s defensive capability, which was led by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. Similarly, Vis Island off Croatia was used as a wartime emergency landing site fro Allied forces. Aircraft wrecks continue to be discovered on the seabed round these islands, revealing historic evidence of the extensive losses to both sides during this campaign. These wrecks represent rare and important examples of our wartime aviation heritage, currently hidden from the gaze of researchers, historians and the general public. We will present examples of these important wreck sites using a range of 3D visualisation techniques
