...Of course, enthusiasts of WW2 “Warbirds,” military history buffs and action figure collectors are all equally excited about this stunning discovery, especially after learning that yes, the buried planes were still INSIDE their shipping crates, tarred, lubed and sealed up tight.This find is pretty important because the number of working Spitfires in the world is only 35, so these twenty will go a long way towards ensuring their survival. Spitfires are an important part of not just British history, but world history. These are the planes that helped defend England during the Blitz and fought the forces of Fascism in Europe and Asia. Plus, they're just pretty to look at. Pre-jet engine military aircraft have an elegance and beauty that their successors their lack.
