The search for a collection of Spitfires thought to have been buried during WW2 has commenced in Burma.
An initial survey will be carried out – and is expected to take ten days – followed by between four and six weeks’ worth of excavations.
A geophysical survey had revealed large areas of conducting material ten metres underground at the Mingaladon site to which search leader David Cundall had been directed by locals.
