A belt buckle bearing Nazi insignia, a shaving brush and a pair of boots were among items found within a sunken World War Two war plane which have helped to solve the mystery of its disappearance.
The Luftwaffe plane was found at the bottom of the Black Sea by a team of divers nearly 70 years after it vanished mid-flight.
The fate of the aircraft and its nine crew members had remained a mystery since it was reported missing in 1942.

Given the condition of the aircraft you would assume that the crew stood a good chance of surviving the crash which I guess means they drowned.
