What is the process they use for freezing?

Also, is there an online translator for Swedish to English?


: Hi,
: Some time ago I wrote that the Swedish Air Force would rec

: The aircraft has been recovered from ca 100 meters depth a
: nd the crew is identified etc. What is interesting for a b
: roader audience on this board is the fifth and last photo,
: which shows how a section of the bottom has been frozen,
: so that it can be lifted abord and any pieces etc in the u
: pper 20 cm of the bottom sediment can be recovered for ana
: lysis.
: I don't know if this tecnique has been used for recovering

: Unfortunately most of the aircraft will probably be scrapp
