Quite a haul - at least 36, possibly up to 60!

i think 60 odd years buried in a jungle will have rotted most of them away.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

When I read about this a few weeks ago it said they were believed to be packed in crates that were then coated in tar. So if the stories are true a large % should be ok.

They've been known about for a while, they are in bits I think and need assembling.

Very few did. Those that did should be ashamed of themselves.

BBC are reporting that the guy who claims to have found these may be ... mistaken.

I hope they find them, and get a load of them airworthy - what a flypast that would make!

Will they have to buy glue and an inestimable number of little pots of paint?

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

Disposing of the sprue will be a problem, that's for sure. :P

once my airfix planes had started to lose bits-guns first, then propellor blades and tailwheel etc , I used to wait until my mam had gone to the shop and put the plane on the fire in a bit that wasn't lit and squirt it with her hairspray: KABOOM. beat CGI outa site.
