Video of P-40 Found in Desert

This video of a P-40, discovered in the Al Wadi al Jadid Desert, was recently published on youtube.  The two part series (part one, part two)appears to show locals more concerned with making a quick buck and grabbing the still loaded guns than selling it for big money to a collector.  Judging by the post, rumors of the find were floating around and the person posted the video to prove its existence.
If anyone knows more about this aircraft and the person who posted the video, we'd love to hear from you.  Is this truly a recent find, is the plane still there, and are there plans to rescue it?
