The RAAF also apparently buried Spits in sealed crates around some WW2 RAAF bases in Australia. There were reports from Australian airliner crews that they had seen unregistered Spitfires flying in outback Queensland in the early 60's. The reports were ignored, but rumours persised for years that a cache of Spitfires had been located, excavated & the aircraft had been assembled with ex-RAAF personnell. They haven't been seen for a long time & no-one is talking.
If no one saw this coming, they are a fool!
...And the race is on .. No matter where they are in the world, England should have FIRST claim to them, Not a farmer who tried to play James Bond of his own doing .. If any one is being held "hostage" over it all, it's England
Why should England have first claim??? They abandoned them!!!
Possession seems to have first claim right now.
Will be nice to see it when they finally finish with it.
