This will be amazing to say the least!

From http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/10...uried-wwii-planes/?test=latestnews

"Burma has signed a deal with a British aviation enthusiast to allow the excavation of a World War II treasure: dozens of Spitfire fighter planes buried by the British almost 70 years ago."

Big difference between those two. I know one of the financiers of the expedition that pulled out Glacier Girl. The shifting ice did a lot of damage and they weren't unassembled and packed for shipment like the ones in Burma. Even if there is a fair amount of damage they'll be able to do something with these frames.



The beatings will continue until morale improves
