A fighter plane which crashed landed in the Sahara during WWII has been found preserved by a Polish oil company worker. [Thanks to Catherine for the heads up!]
The Kittyhawk P-40 has remained unseen and untouched since it came down on the sand in June 1942 and has been hailed the “aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun’s Tomb”.
The RAF airman, believed to have been Flight Sergeant Dennis Copping, 24, was never seen again.
