Archaeologists discover WWII plane wreck and human remains in Poland

Warsaw: Archaeologists have discovered the wreck of a US-made bomber flown by the Soviet Red Army in World War II, along with the remains of four crewmen killed when it crashed in southern Poland, private broadcaster TVN reported.

Only one man survived when the B-25 Mitchell was shot down by the German air force on January 19, 1945, a 23-year-old commander who parachuted out and was taken into German captivity.

Three men carry a sand-covered part of a World War II B-25 Mitchell bomber used by the Soviet air force when it was downed in 1945 by a German fighter near the town of Bierun, southern Poland.
