Archaeologists will begin digging for the historic hoard of at least 36 British fighter planes in January, experts said on Wednesday. A proportion of the aircraft will then be carefully packaged and brought back to the UK next spring, where they will be restored.
David Cundall, a farmer and aviation enthusiast from Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, has spent 16 years researching the project after being told about the burial by a group of U.S. veterans. It was his tenacity and perseverance and his “obsession to find and restore an incredible piece of British history” that will finally see a team begin digging in the New Year.
