    Shame there's no examples of what it can do

    They have also just found 12 "brand new" Spitfires buried in their crates in Burma

    Buried at the end of the last war, (WWll), still wrapped in protective materials and in their delivery crates - a squadron

    will cost about £500,000 to excavate them etc., - found by a farmer from Sandtoft, Lincs who has been on their trail for a few years after hearing from a US WWll vet about the incident

    Wonders never cease

    a Spitfire is probably worth £2m in "running" condition!

    Now I want a 3mm lens in a m43 mount for the 6mm equivalent ;)
    How do things of this size and value get misplaced?!

    And Bill, that story is just amazing.... I can;t wait to see photos!

    Wow! That's a proper treasure hunt.

    My Grandpa was in Burma for some of his war service, but not with planes. He says he was part of the first mob flown out rather than shipped. But then, he said a lot of stuff, much of which was dubious.
