Gents,
Now this is Brilliant! When I heard this great story yesterday, it reminded me of the beginning of the film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", where a group of Scientists find the Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bombers in perfect shape, the famous lost squadron of 5 TBMs that crashed in 1945 in the supposed Bermuda Triangle.....

Imagine 2 Squadrons of pristine Spitfires! What a find, and a Good Show for the British Government!

Here's the links, certain to be many more. They'd better film this as what a documentary it would make!

Chocks away soon!
