Search for reported surviving Spitfires in Burma[edit]

After hostilities ceased in Asia in 1945, a number of Spitfire Mk.XIVs were reportedly buried, after being greased, tarred and prepared for long-term storage, in crates in Burma.

Excavations carried out at Yangon International Airport (formerly RAF Mingaladon) in early 2013 failed to locate any of the rumoured aircraft,[163][164] and the team reported that they found no evidence that Spitfires were shipped there in crates or buried.[165] Pat Woodward, who was an RAF pilot operating from Burma at the end of the war, reported that no such burying took place.[166] In 2016 it was reported that the hunt was continuing.[167]
