BURMA – 20 venerable WWII Spitfire fighter planes may soon return to the skies


The British press has recently reported the discovery in Myanmar (Burma) of 20 buried Spitfire fighter planes. An agreement has supposedly been reached for the recovery and return of the aircraft to the UK.

This is a significant event in the history of the Spitfire which played a pivotal role in the Second World War and especially the Battle of Britain. Of the 20,351 Spitfires that were produced during the war, only about 40 are now operational anywhere in the world. The addition of 20 more of these splendid planes will be a boon to collectors and ensure the legacy of the Spitfire will not be lost.
