Parts of WWII fighter plane unearthed

CASCO TOWNSHIP (WKOW) -- History buffs might be flocking to southeastern Michigan soon. Four men say they have unearthed pieces of a World War II-era fighter plane.

Jim Clary, his brother, Ben, and two men from the Michigan Treasure Hunters used metal detectors to make the find Friday in St. Clair County's Casco Township just east of Richmond.

Jim Clary tells the Times Herald of Port Huron the recovered fragments are from a P-38D Lightning that was piloted by 2nd Lt. Al Voss, a native of Elgin, Illinois, assigned to the 94th Pursuit Squadron stationed at Selfridge air base in Michigan.

Voss died in the October 1941 crash.
