WWII Spitfire pulled from Irish bog

An RAF Spitfire has been pulled from the Irish peat bog it crashed into 70 years ago.

Six machine guns and about 1,000 rounds of ammunition were also discovered by archaeologists searching the Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal.

The British fighter plane was piloted by an American, Roland “Bud” Wolf, who parachuted safely from the aircraft before it crashed in the bog in November
