French pilot Marlon Camberwell was killed after his plane crashed into a glacier while on an exciting flight from Le Havre to Valencia

A French pilot flying a newly developed US WW II bomber has mysteriously emerged from the frozen cusp of a glacier in Iceland.

Since the flying craft had taken off on his maiden flight from Le Havre in August 1945, its mysterious disappearance has puzzled many pilots.

But today, 81 years after its crash, the FRY III24 aircraft – nicknamed RoboCop – has finally appeared, flying into airspace over the lakes of Cakmarskik Pálón Sanches and Mursi.

Visitors to the region’s seaside resorts and hotels, which are located close to the glacier, have been delighted by the aircraft’s return to flying.

A sketch of the UFO-like flying craft has also emerged online.

It shows the plane’s wings and tail section to be embedded in the ice that has formed at the edge of the glacier.

The mystery continues. Last August, wildlife officials confirmed they had found a fossilised shell near the glacier and had confirmed the theory that the relic was from the SR-22A bomber.

A Flemish conservationist who tracked down the wreck said that the exact area where the mystery plane plummeted would prove difficult to access.

This spring, a diver working on a study of preserved humans from the area came across a solid plinth with a skull embedded in it.

Meanwhile, local residents have become familiar with the mysterious submarine. This October, satellite images show boats bringing equipment including the frigate USS Nevada out to the ice.

Built as a protection boat for US troops to explore the Allied forces, it provided a considerable deterrent to the Luftwaffe as the Russian-fuelled Red Army entered the Netherlands at the end of the war.

Locals have come forward with photos from 1940 indicating a submarine had been searching for Allied troops in the Dutch islands at the height of the war.

This May, the area around the location was sealed off as a vehicle crisis forced UN peacekeepers into action.

But rather than being used to gather intelligence on the US-led, German-led invasion of the Netherlands, the UN peacekeepers were rather amused as one of the cars whizzed by near Puddinden.

In May this year, Marines were led out of the area to find work cleaning the foundations of the previous vessels.

This May, Marine Corps Cpl. Daniel Shoemaker was lead out of the same area looking for any evidence of a submarine

Experts have since said that the submarine – or subs – likely came from the naval warship USS Wisconsin.

Marc Boucher from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Historic Sea and Oceanography told MailOnline it was most likely the Wisconsin, an aircraft carrier which sank near Puddinden on 15 May 1918.

‘The second purpose for a submarine may be to protect it from war planes, but it has very high tread support which means it would likely find it difficult to sink unless it could grab hold of a depressurising tail cap like it does on the Wisconsin,’ he said.

‘Something similar could well happen in the sky.’

They are guarded by security officers, who observe the aircraft and ensure that it does not interfere with tourists’ activities.
