Another WWII Aircraft Uncovered

Sixty-five years ago the pilot of a P-38 Lightning ran out of fuel and ditched the fighter plane in the shallow surf off the coast of Wales. The pilot walked away from the plane, and so did the U.S. government. The plane was gradually covered by the shifting sands until it was buried, forgotten to history.

Last summer, a family vacationing on the beach stumbled upon the remains of the plane, re-emerging after its long burial. British military historians are now working to extract the plane and place it in a museum.
