Repost on Facebook and Twitter

[{The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-3) was a Soviet fighter and interceptor aircraft used during World War II. It was a development of the MiG-1 by the OKO (opytno-konstruktorskij otdel — Experimental Design Department) of Zavod (Factory) No. 1 to remedy problems found during the MiG-1's development and operations. It replaced the MiG-1 on the production line at Factory No. 1 on 20 December 1940 and was built in large numbers during 1941 before Factory No. 1 was converted to build the Ilyushin Il-2.]

The first thing is exploration and collection of information about the object.Then preparation for check out and departure for the proposed location. Often the exhibits are well preserved in bogs or ponds. This aircraft was found in a lake in the Murmansk region.

Most likely the airplane is deep to the bottom and it hides the layer of silt. Pull ropes does not make sense, as broken fragile structure of the skeleton. In order to get her out of there, you need to pump air under it that the process was as natural as possible.
