A 14-year-old Danish boy was just trying to do his homework when he stumbled upon a German WWII plane with the pilot’s remains still inside.
Daniel Kristiansen and his father, Klaus, stumbled upon the wreckage of what is believed to be a Messerschmitt fighter plane in a field on their farm near Birkelse in northern Denmark, CNN reports.
Armed with a metal detector, Kristiansen and his father were conducting research for his history class when the device began to beep, prompting them to dig.
“I hoped we might find some old plates or something for Daniel to show in school,” Klaus Kristiansen told CNN.
