English: Handley Page Halifax B.Mk.II, serial W1048, 'S' for Sugar of No. 35 Squadron RAF, was shot down on the night of the 27/28 April 1942 after a raid on the Tirpitz, and made a successful belly landing on the frozen surface of Lake Hoklingen, Norway, and later sank. In the summer of 1973 it was recovered from the lake and transported to the UK. It is displayed in its "as recovered" condition in the Bomber Command display at the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon in London, apart from the nose turret which had already been restored prior to the decision.
