Wanna buy a used but never flown spitfire?

You may have a chance at doing just that.  A British farmer heard a WWII vet telling a story about how they had buried a squadron of Spitfires in 1945 to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.  The catch?  They were in Burma.  Well, after 15 years of searching, David Cundall of Lincolnshire found his planes.  And they were still buried.  In fact, they were still in the shipping crates.  With a little help from the Prime Minister, it looks like the planes are going to be making there way home to Mother England.

That's pretty neat, I love stories like this. maybe they will do a documentary on it.
