Somewhere in Germany. The R2800 found its way back to England (just look at the shape of the grass blades; it's clearly English). The rest of the airplane didn't make it.

This is proofs that the R2800 was historically indestructable and that it's undermodelled in Il-2.

Click on that link and scroll down. you'll see photos of the rest of the plane such as this:

Caption from that site:

"Charles McCreary was a 66th pilot - routine maintenance flight out of Grosetto - someone left a dust plug in the carburetor intake - on takeoff the engine of course fuel starved and quit and McCreary bellied the bird in with the sorry result - McCreary was not injured."

McCreary was not injured

...but the clot of a mechanic was found pummeled to death a short time later. No arrest was made.
