I saw an item about Britain's famous Spitfire fighter plane from World War II. At the end of the war, a shipment of Spitfires sent to Burma (now Myanmar) was declared surplus. The local commander decided the easiest and cheapest way to deal with them was to bury them still in their shipping crates. 67 years later, a man has plans to dig them up. According to another Delphi poster, they could go for around 5 million pounds each if they are in pristine condition.
