This P-40 is an RAF one which crash landed in WW2, you can read the story here..

The pilot was Flt Sgt Dennis Copping, a 24 year old who was reported MIA in June 1942. It is in good condition as it would appear that the pilot made an almost perfect crash landing, survived, set up camp then wandered off into the desert. The British embassy are planning a search for his remains.

I just wanted to make a suggestion on those that think this should be covered by sand by now.

It is apparent by the exposed rock in the terrain that this is not an area trending dunes. carry on..cool thread op!

Telegraph is running the story now;

WWII fighter plane hailed the 'aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun's Tomb' found preserved in the Sahara

Poor pilot, he survived the crash, made a makeshift camp for god knows how long, then tried to trek out of the desert never to be seen or heard from again.
