Salvaging the DC-3

Swedish Spy Plane Had American Links

The newspaper “Svenska Dagbladet” reports that there’s more evidence linking a Swedish spy plane shot down by the Soviet Union during the Cold War with American intelligence agencies.

The DC-3 was supposed to be on training flight over the Baltic when it was shot down in 1952. The Swedish government later admitted it had been carrying out radio espionage on the Soviet Union.

“Svenska Dagbladet” cites a now-deceased engineer for the Swedish Defense Research Agency, who said the plane carried secret American equipment on loan from NATO.

According to reports, the divers who salvaged the plane on the bottom of the Baltic two years ago, found no traces of the American equipment.
