A family farm in Birkelse, Denmark is where teenager Daniel Rom Kristiansen, and his father set out the search based on a family story of a warplane crashing in their field back in 1944.  After the metal detector did it’s job, the digging began. It wasn’t until 13 feet deep that they started pieces of a plane, then an engine and eventually bone fragments and even a wallet. The WWII plane was a German BF 109, the German pilot who went down with the plane is yet to be identified…  but what a find!
