  • WW2 1942 crashed plane found in desert

    Quite something to find a preserved plane like this from WW2..found a couple of months ago in Egypt, the British Embassy are going to try and find the pilot's remains.

    Interesting (and sad) story.

    Fascinating innit? It's pitiful really, thinking of one lonely death so long ago, but there must have been plenty of those in the desert war alone.

      Indeed, one of many, I think it really brings it home when they give the personal account like that. It's like a timewarp as the article said, so very strange.

          Been following this on one of my aviation forums. Pilot's identity not yet confirmed and even though the wreck is remote various items have already been removed...

          Hoping a swift and secure recovery can be made and hopefully some clue as to location of pilot.
