P-38 fighter discovered under Welsh beach

'THE eerie outline of a crashed wartime fighter plane emerges from the sands of a British beach. Incredibly, the rusting wreckage went undetected for more than 60 years.

Now a charity plans to retrieve the American Lockheed P38 Lightning - which suddenly appeared three years ago after being buried on the shore. It was discovered at low tide following a drop in beach levels at Harlech, North Wales.'


SR: Yep, that's a Lightning. Certified deadly by Adm. Yamamoto....Damn it, they really put those P38s together...remember the P38 they recovered in Greenland? It was buried 268 feet under a glacier for 50 years!... After a nut and bolt restoration "Glacier Girl" is back in the air...here's a link to the video:

A few years ago they found the pilot of a WW2 training plane in the Serria Nevada's in California, his body emerging from a glasier. He was idenitied and family notifed, but it was so long ago, nobody really knew him. They had only herd family stories of him being lost during WW2. Within the last year a WW2 fighter was discovered off shore in Santa Monica Bay by a suba diver.
