Well, duh. Because that would be way cool.

However, after the reading the article, I have a couple of questions:

A lost squadron of Spitfires that has been buried in the Burmese jungle since the end of the Second World War is to be dug up and brought back to Britain.

Up to 60 planes were buried in transport crates at a secret location 40ft below ground at the end of the war to ensure they didn’t fall into enemy hands.


1. Since when does one squadron equal 60 planes?

2. Why would they need to hide their planes from the enemy at the end of the war?

Maybe it is a polite way of saying allies of convenience?
