Is it the pilot? Bones and a parachute found near eerily preserved plane that crashed in Sahara desert 70 years ago k

A body has been found in the desert close to the spot where a pilot disappeared after crash-landing during the war.

The wreckage of the P40 Kittyhawk plane was found perfectly preserved earlier this year, 70 years after the accident, and now it seems that airman Dennis Copping’s remains may have been recovered nearby.

The bones were located on some rocks four months ago, along with a piece of parachute, about three miles from where the plane landed in the Sahara desert in 1942. for more click here
