RAF Flight Sargent Dennis Copping was charged on June 28, 1942 with shuttling a Kittyhawk P-40 to another airbase where they could better work on the front landing gear that would not retract. At the time Rommel was busily chasing the Brits all over the Sahara and every piece of equipment was important. Unfortunately Sgt. Copping got turned around and ended up running out of fuel over the Egyptian desert. Well, the plane, but alas not Sgt. Copping, has been found, and in remarkable shape.
