Bericht Well preserved Kittyhawk P-40 fighter found in Sahara
He was hundreds of miles from civilisation, lost in the desert. WWII Flight Sergeant Dennis Copping took what little he could from the RAF Kittyhawk he had crash-landed, then wandered into the emptiness. From that day in June 1942 the mystery of what happened to him was lost in the sands of time. But 70 years later, the remains of his battered but almost perfectly preserved plane has been discovered. Now a search is to begin for the airman's remains - as aviation experts and historians begin an operation to recover the P-40 aircraft. The chance find was made by an oil worker exploring a remote region of the Western Desert in Egypt - 200 miles from the nearest town.
