    There has to be a lot. The thing that makes this more interesting is the amount of aircraft suspected to be there and the fact that they are crated and hopfully have been protected from the elements. More information is coming out now that the crew is preparing to dig. They say that at some point a bore hole was drilled and a camera inserted into a crate. They reported that the areas filmed were in "good" condition and that they expected to have flyable aircraft. They also expect 15 to 40 aircraft in total from 3 or 4 different locations. They expect 10 to 20 from the first spot alone. I hope they're right, we'll see.

    Still watching this with much antisipation. I was on you tube sometime ago and wasted a few hours watching vids of folks in europe pulling ww2 tanks out of bogs. they were completely buried and afterwards they would restore. Some were in such good shape that the paint was still intact.

    I wonder how many firearms are still sealed in the Liberty Ships sunk by the Uboats off the Atlantic Coast in WWII?

    44044 - If you go to YouTube and search on " tanks bog " ,like MtDew says, there's hours of interesting tank rescues on there. There was one that ame out with the winter camouflage still intact. Those folks work incredibly hard but the results are amazing.
