Very cool find!


Twenty Spitfire fighter aircraft buried in Myanmar during World War II are to be dug up and shipped back to Britain, officials say.
The planes will be returned to Britain as a result of intervention by British Prime Minister David Cameron, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The planes had been buried more than 40 feet beneath the ground for nearly 67 years because of fears of Japanese occupation.

  1. I wonder what shape they are in? If they are well-preserved, it could indeed be a really cool find.

  2. I just wanted to let you know of a great opportunity for veterans through Anago cleaning. We're holding a contest to honor our veterans, in which people can nominate a veteran they know that has impacted their life. We know and appreciate all that you do for us, and this is a way to give you some of the recognition you deserve. The person gets to nominate a veteran of their choosing, and then there will be a voting period to show support, and the person with the most votes will win a $250 Visa Gift Card. It's a fun way to be recognized and mildly rewarded for your efforts. You can find the contest here at http://www.facebook.com/AnagoCleaning/app_195405330560325. Thank you so much for your time, effort, and support. I hope you continue having a wonderful day.

  3. Very cool and ... interesting. 40 feet is a long way to dig... a lot of dirt. Curious now. Thanks.
