A wartime sunken Ilyushin Il-2 aircraft was found on the bottom of the Black Sea near Novorossiysk after two years of search.

Divers are currently working at the place of discovery. They are trying to clear the ground-attack aircraft of silt and get to the engine to identify it by number. The work is complicated by the fact that the Il-2 lies upside down. In addition, it is not yet possible to get the pilot’s remains to establish his identity, Sputnik Georgia reports.
