I hope he's right. Too bad about all the water, though.

But it makes me wonder why, if the planes were unwanted surplus, did they go to all the trouble of burying them instead of simply destroying them? At the time those planes weren't anything special, just a few examples of thousands that were around.
"Cundall says it was common practice at the end of the war to bury military machines such as planes, tanks and jeeps"
Seems odd to do that unless they thought they could come back later for them. And if that was the case, I wonder why none who buryed them ever did return for them- assuming no one did.

It sounds promising! I hope they are in better shape than the buried Belvedere.
