The wreckage of an British plane which crashed 70 years ago has been found in the Sahara Desert.
The Kittyhawk fighter-bomber went down in June 1942, and hasn't been seen since.
CNN is reporting it was stumbled on by a Polish man who was exploring the Egyptian desert.
RAF Commodore Ken McCann says it's an incredible find.
"What an amazing, amazing story for an aircraft 70 years ago to have gone down in the desert to be in such good condition and to be found intact after all these years."
There's no sign of the pilot's remains, although his parachute is near the plane and it's thought he might have tried to make a shelter from it.
