Ambitious Plan To Salvage WW2 Lightning

The decaying wreckage of a Second World War fighter plane, exposed after 65 years by changing tides on the Welsh coast, is to be removed.
Known as the Maid of Harlech, the Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter aircraft was discovered in July 2007 after decades hidden under the sands.

What an amazing project. My best friends father was a P-38 pilot. Lost his leg bailing out.

That one looks to be in pretty sad shape. I seriously doubt it will ever fly again. I watched the complete build of Glacier Girl and visited the hangar several times. That was a MAJOR undertaking and they did not have to deal with salt water corrosion.
