All stop, all engines stop, hold everything, nobody move til you see this... a WW2 P40 was just found in the Sahara desert. So intact the bullets are still in the wing guns, it crashed in 1942







Park of the Royal Air Force of England, it's a Curtiss P40 Kittyhawk

Not much story, just that no human remains were with the plane, the parachute was deployed next to the plane, so you can guess that the pilot landed well enough to use it for shade, then tried to walk out of the desert.
