The New Battle of Burma: Find 20 buried Spitfires and make them fly


  • Historic planes buried in Second World War are to be shipped back to Britain after their mystery locations were discovered
  • War leaders did not want them to fall into foreign hands when they demobilised in 1945
  • Hidden in crates at a depth of 4ft to 6ft the RAF then forgot where they were

David Cameron has secured an agreement that they will be returned to Britain.
