Unearthed after 65 years
A long-lost WWII fighter plane has resurfaced in Wales - after spending the past 65 years buried under water and sand. The P-38 aircraft, part of the American war contribution, had made an emergency landing on the Welsh coast in 1942 after it ran out of fuel. It remained buried till erosion uncovered it in July. Historic aircraft experts hope to recover it for a military museum in Britain.
