Aviation Treasure found in Desert Tomb

Just recently something amazing was found.  Although hidden for years, it has been well preserved through the sands of time.  Not a man like Ötzi the Iceman who lived 5,300 years ago and was found in September 1991 in the Ötztal Alps.  Not an animal like Yuka the Woolly Mammoth which was recently found and determined by scientists to have lived over 10,000 years ago.  It is a P40 aircraft from World War II, found in the Western Desert of Egypt, 200 miles outside of the closest town.

As the story goes, the pilot, Flight Sergeant Copping, survived the emergency landing only to die of exposure attempting to exit the desert.

Although some argue the authenticity of the story and wreckage, the photos are hard to argue.
