I was chatting the other day with a guy who specializes in Burma/Myanmar and travels there frequently. His view is that no Spitfires will come out of this and this is all a rather elaborate cover for illegal activities/deals. Make of that what you will.

Spitfire shmitfire, but if anybody's mucking about in a lake in northern Italy and finds a Do X, I want to be the first to know.

Who buries a crate of water at the end of a runway? There must have been something at one time. Pity it wasn't an airplane though.Earlier this month, the search team found a wooden crate believed to contain one of the planes in the northern Kachin state, but it turned out to be full of muddy water.

My usualy reliable source says it was a crate of 200 RAF greatcoats!

So is the end of the story? They found something that may or may not be a crate full of water so they are calling it quits. I have been looking all over the net for some new info and I haven't found anything.
