This is a different kind of aircraft then we usually find in this thread. On March 5, 1945, the Lancaster NN775 crashed into a swampy meadow in Bunsbeek, Belgium. The aircraft was on its way back from Gelsenkirchen, where it was carrying out an attack on a benzene refinery, when it was hit by German anti-aircraft fire. It crashed and disappeared meters underground. The seven occupants were killed. The device was only excavated in 2016.

Those "occupants" are called Airman.
Seems better to have left it undisturbed, I understand about identifying the dead, but still

It is an exhibition in the Overloon War Museum and I lifted the text from their website. It is a translation of the text in Dutch and in Dutch "inzittenden" is fine. Same with describing the plane as a device - in Dutch it is "toestel", a common term to describe an aircraft - I think machine would have been a better translation.

I googled for the reason why they exhumed the aircraft, but I did not find a clear one. Aircraft archaeologists started the investigation. What I do know is that in the 1940's they already exhumed the bodies of four of the seven crewmen. They now found the remains of the three other airmen. Reading this article in the Belfast Telegraph it seems they did not know in the 1940's who of the crew they exhumed. in the end they have a shared grave, like they had a shared plane.

Norman Kerr, pilot, Northern Ireland (23 years)
Sidney Smith, navigator, United Kingdom (21 years)
William Marsden, Lancashire, United Kingdom (20 years)
Frank Clarke, bombardier, Warwickshire, United Kingdom (21 years)
William Olsen, wireless operator, Toowoomba, Australia (21 years)
Herbert Thomas, tailgunner, Clarendon, Jamaica (23 years)
Christopher Hogg, upper fuselage turret gunner, South Yardley, Birmingham, United Kingdom (20 years)

Edit: I copied the list of airmen from a source that made a mistake, Norman Kerr was from Northern Ireland, not Northern Island.

Young people died in this war.

I am going back to a quieter (for now) present.

I have to nitpick your titling: although Dulles International Airport serves Washington DC area, it is actually located in Dulles, Virginia.

I even lived there for a bit and flew in/out of there but didn't know that. As we live, so we learn.

Ok, I have to admit that I wasn't sure about this when I first saw your post, but a quick web search confirmed my hunch.
