Plane amazing! This World War II-era fighter plane was discovered recently in the Sahara Desert.

The Kittyhawk P-40 is believed to have come down in June 1942 after Royal Air Force Flight Sgt. Dennis Copping, 24, bailed out, according to England’s Daily Telegraph newspaper. He was never seen again.

The downed plane was found in a remote region in western Egypt — some 200 miles from the nearest town — by a Polish oil company worker. British military historian Andy Saunders called it “the aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun’s tomb.”
