They think they're in crates.

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.

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.
