PNG P-47 Redux

There is a picture of 2 of the 3 airframes in Aeroplane Monthly this month

They say they were found in a pit under the P-40 Fuselage. The P-40 Fuselage had a wing attached sticking out of the ground 'like a memorial'. They thought it was just a wing, but when they dug further trhey found thye rest of the P-40 and the P-47 under that.

I HAVE seen a picture of a P-40 wing like that on the net (methinks webshots or pacific wrecks?) can anyone else remember that? and has anybody got the link?

Oh and what happened to the P-40????
