Junkers Ju 88

The Junkers Ju 88 was a World War II Luftwaffe twin-engine, multi-role aircraft. Among the most versatile planes of the war, it was used as a bomber, close-support aircraft, nightfighter, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, Heavy fighter, and even as a giant flying bomb in the Mistel project. Despite its protracted development, the aircraft became one of the Luftwaffe's most crucial assets. There were 15,000 Ju 88s built during World War II.

This Ju 88 had been shot down just off from deal and it is found upside-down because when it crashed into the sea, it had the landing gear down so the wheels flipped it upside down. This is quite common for plane wrecks.
