The remains of a wartime Hurricane which was shot down during a dogfight over Sussex lay buried and undiscovered for more than 50 years - until in 1996 parts of the aircraft were dug up. They've been in a museum ever since.
That was until today, when some sections of the plane were presented to the landlord of a pub in Hove - named after the pilot and located just yards away from where he lost his life.
Charlotte Wilkins takes up the story and speaks to Keith Arnold, a local historian & John Samuels - an eye witness.
