    WWII Bomber's Engine Dug Out of Ground in Hungary

    A piece of an American B-24 bomber that flew its last mission nearly 65 years ago has resurfaced in Hungary.

    One of the plane's engines was dug out of the ground and cleaned of earth Saturday by Hungarian soldiers and members of the Hungarian Wreck Research Association, according to the Associated Press. The relic was located in Szigetszentmiklos, just south of Budapest.

    The Liberator was shot down by the Hungarian air defense while it bombed the Duna Airplane Factory on April 13, 1944, the Associated Press reports.

    It wasn't immediately clear what Hungarian authorities intended to do with the salvaged engine.
