For those who don't already know an exciting story appeared some months ago talking about a  rumoured cache of Spitfire XIVs buried at the end of the Pacific War in Burma. It sounded so plausible and, it seemed, these Spitfire XIVs would soon be uncovered and restored to their former glory, with the willing assistance of the British government...yeah, right.  Roll Eyes

Nothing more has been heard about this for very good reasons,  as explained in this well written article on this archaeology site. T'would seem that politics and gold-diggers still have some influence in aviation archaeology.

But wait THERE'S MORE! Now there were at least 60 Spitfires carefully packed away and buried in Burma! I hope it's true but I get the funny feeling that this will quietly fade away: if not it would have to be THE Aviation Archaeology story EVER...we'll just have to wait and see.
