B-24 Liberator - Lady Be Good, running low on fuel, Pilot 1st Lt Hatton shut down 3 of the 4 engines to conserve gasoline, but in the end the fliers were forced to bail out. They did not try to land the Lady with its radio and precious supply of food & water because they thought they were over the sea. Eight of the 9 men came down about 15 miles from the crash site but did not search for the plane. The 9th man, bombardier 2Lt Lt John S. Woravka did not join up & his body was never found.

Ghost Fighter Photograph by Jakub Perka, BNPS Recently discovered in Egypt by an oil-exploration team, a World War II fighter plane called "the aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun's tomb" bears the scars of 70 years in the Sahara desert. "I've never seen anything like it," said Ian Thirsk, head of collections at the Royal Air Force (RAF) Museum in London. The Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk is "the best preserved example of a Second World War aircraft I've seen for many, many years."
"The Kittyhawk P-40 has remained unseen and untouched since it came down on the sand in June 1942 and has been hailed the "aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun's Tomb." This is really cool, and kind of sad we might lose this piece of history to looters.
