36 WWII Spitfires buried in Burma to be excavated
Published on November 29th, 2012 | by Admin1
The aircraft are thought to have been shipped to RAF bases before being buried, un-assembled, in their crates.
Having signed an agreement with the Myanmar government permitting him to survey and excavate the site last month, he hopes a final round of negotiations will allow the dig to take place in January 2013.
Since 1974, Cundall has tracked down and excavated Spitfires, Hurricanes and a Lancaster Bomber across Britain.
