    They've actually had a team of archaeologists,diggers, geophysicists, and two mechanical excavators on the job.....The only find they got besides a load of water pipes and electrical cables that supplied the airport was.....A single piece of RAF issue Pierced Steel Planking (PSP) used to construct temporary runways.

    Not a very good return on a 1million investment...Thus far.

    Video: Burma Spitfire hunter David Cundall vows to continue search despite loss of sponsor - Telegraph

    Is this guy serious....???What was he doing then, planting 'taters like he does back in Lincolnshire???

    If it's truly possible, it get's worse.....The crated Spitfire alledgedly discovered by drilling a hole, and filmed by Mr.Cundall at Myitkania has actually turned out to be, quote, "A rubbish dump."

    I hate to say I told you so, but........
