...in Burma.

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.
Now this is the Law of the Jungle --
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

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?

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