I believe that a Luftwaffe base was located near the shore of the lake and that there are several types known to have crashed into it during the war , there are also reports that the Soviets salvaged several for scrap..although you would wonder why they would bother ! According to Axel Urbanke [ I think ] there are a couple of other D-9s known to be in this lake or one nearby ..hopefully one day someone will do a sonar survey ..although the Germans don't seem too keen on raising them , thee are several other known good condition Luftwaffe aircraft in German lakes , but I would think they are there to stay until the stigma of the Nazi era disappears..which will be a long while yet ;-0 [ Unless a private concern can get permission.]
