War Tubas of World War 2

Used for detecting the sound of approaching aircraft. True story.


The pilot crash landed his fighter plane in the Sahara desert after veering off course, never to be heard from again. That was 70+ years ago. Recently someone stumbled upon the wreckage in a very obscure part of the desert, 200 miles from the closest village, sitting there just as it has since the day it crashed. Pretty amazing to imagine it’s been like that for so long without anyone knowing about it.
