Experts claim this to be the aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun's Tomb in terms of how well the airplane has been preserved in the dry desert climate. It was discovered solely by chance, when a Polish oil worker Jakub Perka spotted it while exploring the remote region of the Western Desert in Egypt.
The RAF airman, Flight Sergeant Dennis Copping, 24, is believed to have crash landed here and took refuge before he attempted the desperate and futile walk-out of the desert. With the recent finding of the airplane, the search for the pilots remains has been re-opened as well.
