Buried Spitfires set to take to the sky

A lost squadron of Spitfires buried in Burma after World War II could fly over Britain within three years. According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, digging for the hoard of at least 36 Mark XIV fighters will begin in January at a remote airfield. Should the efforts succeed, a number of the aircraft will be carefully packaged and brought home next spring, where they will be restored.The discovery could more than double the number of Spitfires flying.
