The winter mission was very risky and behind enemy lines, and did not succeed when the aircraft were damaged when landing on the frozen surface of the lake, making them unable to take-off again.
When the ice melted in the spring, the aircraft sank to the lakebed, where they remained for more than 40 years.
and some have been lifted out
