Why am I wondering if Geraldo Rivera is somehow involved in this?
These were supposedly unassembled Spitfires in crates that arrived in Burma late in the war. It was too expensive to ship them back and they weren't needed so they buried the crates. Theoretically all the pieces would be packed thick with cosomoline and wrapped in oil paper. The actual crates were teak and virtually rot proof. I'd say even with the water table there would be a good chance that some if not most would be salvageable
Taking a slight diversion on this thread, but along a similar line, there's an apocryphal story that's been circulating around the British Harley-Davidson scene for many years. Supposedly, sometime after the war in European finished the US army had a load of brand new Harley WLA 45's (despatch riders bikes) in stock and again buried them somewhere in Britain (possibly Scotland) rather then shipping them back stateside. Unfortunately of course no one knows where.
