    WW2Nut, did you find anything interesting? Amazing how little remains for the volume that went through LLandow.
    Well it's a good start....

    Is that the legendary MB5 i'm seeing perchance....????

    It looks like it but actually a Mustang V with a long canopy and missing panels. FR409, struck off charge in 1947.

    I've had to listen to the buried harley story a couple of times. I did hear of buried American stuff from a guy in Wiltshire, at the same time he pointed out the crash site of a tiger Moth. He was spot on with the aircraft which did make me wonder. One of those things to 'go back to'. Bird Dog's efforts show that there are still surprises.
    I was shown a site where RAF intelligence dumped their aircraft label collection after the war. German, Italian and Jap makers labels scattered amongst building rubble. The guy who found it had feed sacks full, some with the identity of the aircraft still pencilled on the back. Needless to say the site has now been heavily landscaped, not that there was much left.

    I remember reading about a lake in Australia that had been a dumping ground for the military. They found plane parts, guns, and old cars after it had been drained. I'm trying to find it on the net, but will post a link when I can remember where it was.

    The only things I would ever dig for are precious metals, precious and semiprecious stones and ancient artifacts.

    I think there is always a chance of some of these stories being true just look at the tunnels on Jersey were the British dumped alot a German kit after the war
