An oil-exploration team in Egypt stumbled upon a crashed World War II fighter plane that's apparently been sitting in the Sahara desert for 70 years. Apparently, the Royal Air Force P-40 Kittyhawk is in fantastic condition. Relatively speaking, of course. From National Geographic:
"World War II "Time Capsule" Fighter Found in Sahara"
At the suspected time of the crash, Flight Sergeant Copping, the P40's likely pilot, was on a repair run to an RAF desert base—the plane's landing gear had become stuck in the down position. He was probably forced down by an empty fuel tank, the RAF Museum's (Ian) Thirsk said.
Copping was never heard from again. "The pilot obviously got disorientated and lost his bearings," Thirsk said.
