Saint-Exupery's plane found

From the Chicago Sun-Times

The Little Prince, a disarmingly simple tale about a little boy who recounts his space-traveling experiences to a pilot he meets in the Sahara, is believed to be the third best-selling book on the planet, beaten only by the Bible and Karl Marx's Das Kapital.
Funny how The Little Prince is the least fanciful of the three.

If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
