Christos Simatis, a freediver from Corfu, Greece, shared a video he shot of a Ju88 wreck in Corfu island, Greece.
According to respected researcher Byron Tesapsides, claimed that if the diver found it in Barbati: Aufklärungsgruppe 1. (F) 122 FF. Fhnr.Fw. Friedrich Glatzel, Ju 88 D1 (F6+AH, W.Nr. 430076) 100% with BO. Uffz. Rudolf Kainzbauer, BF. Uffz. Franz Hagemann, BS. Ogfr. Herbert Beier, all kiled by Barbati-Korfu 10.02.44
Italian historian Andrea Babuin corrected the above mentioned assumption and stated that since this JU88 has underwing bomb racks, it probably does not belong to a reconnaissance unit (Aufklärungsgruppe 1 in this case).
Byron Tesapsides offered another probability: FF. Ltn. Horst Drognitz (+), Ju 88 A5 (W.Nr. 5277) 100% m. BO. Uffz. Hans Brömel (vw.), BF. Uffz. Herbert Puchert (+), BS. Uffz. Erich Wrusch (+), Notlandung infolge Motorschaden 26.07.41 Kerkyra of 6./Lehrgeschwader 1.
Designed by Junkers Flugzeug – und Motorenwerke (JFM) in the mid-1930s to be a so-called Schnellbomber (“fast bomber”) which would be too fast for any of the fighters of its era to intercept, it suffered from a number of technical problems during the later stages of its development and early operational roles, but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war.
