William Pryor-Bennett grew up hearing stories about his Uncle Denis. He never met his mother's little brother. His uncle was a RAF pilot who went missing during the Second World War.
But now the plane Flight Sergeant Denis Copping was flying over Egypt when he disappeared in 1942 has been unearthed in the Sahara. A Polish oil worker discovered the Kittyhawk perfectly intact, except for the damage caused when it crashed.
It was the first news of Mr. Pryor-Bennett's uncle in seventy years. We reached William Pryor-Bennett in Kinsale, Ireland.
