Buried P-38

This one is not part of the Ghost Squadron, but one that crash-landed on a beach and then was buried.

I don't know as the structure is going to be all that sound, what with being buried in salt water sands for 65 years.

If you had $1,350 (or less) in 1946, you could buy a P-38 from the War Assets Administration. That's about $15,000 in today's money. A flyable P-38 is nearly priceless, I doubt if one would sell for under $2 million. Maybe over $3 million.
