In Egypt, has found oil instead of black gold, a British fighter plane that crashed 70 years ago in the middle of World War II.

Thanks to the good condition of the apparatus, has been shown that the model is 'RAF Kittyhawk Curtiss P-40' and even who was piloting it.

"The P-40 fighter aircraft was manufactured in the USA.Was later surpassed by German ship sand not used much in Europe. However, he played a crucial role in North Africa and Asia,where his performance was less crucial at high altitudes, "says The DailyMail '.

The aircraft that found Jakub Perka (worker in a Polish oil company) is a single-seater that was manned by Dennis Copping, a 24 year old pilot missing since June 1942.
