well it wasn't meant to be aggressive, it's more sarcastic, since the statement made by whoarmongar has no basement and is ludicrous just as much as the news statements.. it was meant in jest anyway, please don't take it always so seriously, it's banter...

Anyway, as Mark from the Key Publishing forum stated "These are not Burmese Air Force Spitfires.

These are considered to be former RAF Mk XIV's with potentially further Mk VIII's downstream.

They are considered to have been buried circa 1946 in wooden crates with a view to possible recovery in the future at a time when there was much political upheaval on the Indian sub-continent.

This has been trundling along for twelve or more years.

The political climate has never been better.

Perfect timing for Vol. II of the boo...

...and yes I have seen the ground penetration scans."

he has seen the scans, I talked to the guys that are going to recover them this morning

Can't say much else unfortunately, let's only say that I never heard of the thing before, I asked a very well informed source who confirmed me that it's true.. it came out only now but the thing has been planned for years now.

In any case, don't believe my word, let's wait and see what they take out from underground

Nobody noticed that the BBC inset pic is obviously a pic of one of the balbo flights at the end of the Duxford Flying Legend weekends

At the bottom of this page:

There is some interesting information. Possible serial numbers for these Spits.
