Towards the end of World War 2, the Royal airforce had brought in a fleet of 20 SuperMarine Spitfires ( Air force, not Navy ) aircrafts to Myanmar for their forward attack role against the Japanese. This was around 1945, however the war ended, and these aircrafts were not required. And bearing in mind that over 20,000 aircrafts were produced, the British thought best to bury them, rather than having to lug them all the way back to Great Britain!. An aircraft enthusiast/farmer made several trips to the country in search of these planes. Now where it gets interesting. These weren't planes that were buried like by the Iraqi forces during their retreat ( whole and right in the sand ). These were crated planes, in crates 8ft by 20 ft! And with all protective plastic/paper/greasing/oiling!! Un-assembled, and never run. And running the last/most power engine that the aircraft had ( over 2000 horsepower. To put it in perspective, the aircraft started with a meek 1000 horsepower engine ). Currently there are around 35 airworthy aircrafts in the whole world, valued at about 1.7 - 1.8 million pounds each. These aircrafts if found in proper condition, could add to the airworthy fleet. To be honest its a great business venture, the whole project is going to cost 500,000 pounds, and fetch them over 30 Million pounds! And to top it all The PM himself ( from UK ) mentioned it! Google around, you'll find more info!
