Hallo Gerolf,

was für ein schönes Photo dieses "Klassikers"! :-)
Zu dem Zeitpunkt, als es entstanden ist, war ich noch nicht einmal in Planung...

Es ist zwar schon ein Weilchen her, seit du das Photo hochgeladen hast und vielleicht hast du es inzwischen selbst herausgefunden, aber das Wrack ist nie geborgen worden. Es blieb an Ort und Stelle. HIER Photos vom März 2007. Ich denke, mittlerweile sollte nichts mehr vorhanden sein.
