Lost Spitfires To Be Recovered

Quote
Burma has signed a deal with a British aviation enthusiast to allow the excavation of dozens of vintage Spitfire fighter planes that have been buried since the Second World War.
The British Embassy said that the agreement was reached after discussions between president Thein Sein and David Cameron during his visit to Burma earlier this year.

Re: Lost Spitfires To Be Recovered

Mr Cundall, has spent £130,000 and 12 visits to Burma to find the planes........
seems like a small amount to pay ( as a deposit ) for 60 Spitfires "in good condition"...
I am sure he will be able to sell them and make BIG MONEY.....
If you wanted one.... how much would you be prepared to pay for one ? ?
