Squadron of ‘Lost’ Spitfires Could Fly in Three Years

Squadron of ‘Lost’ Spitfires Could Fly in Three Years

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.
