Title: Any Spitfire crates found in Austrailian?
Post by: Randall1879 on February 19, 2012, 07:04:35 PM
Greetings fellow Spitfire affecionados,

I seem to recall hearing about a documentary made in Oz about the search for unassembled/crated Spitfires that were supposedly burried in old abandoned mine shafts or just burried in general after the war ended. Anyone see this documentary or know if any aircraft were found? I understand a crated P-40 was indeed found somewhere in Oz but that might have been just here-say. Any info would be appreciated.
Cheers
