According to today's Times, a crashed P-40 has just been found in egypt's western Desert. the pilopt, Sgt Dennis Copping crash landed safely with relatively little damage on 28 June 1942. A photograph sows the sate of the aircraft.

 

Sgt Copping used his parachute to create an awning next to the aircraft but then apparently set off on foot to seek help. His body has not been found. RIP
