    The sound of a big watercooled V12 is as sweet as it gets, what a great find!

    If they sell? The bidding on those will start well over a million bucks each.
    Do not tell Bluejack about them.

    when I saw this it reminded me that our gov't did the same thing
    sometimes TCM on cable has old mvietone news breifs between movies. about 10 years ago they had one where the US air force was up-dating to jets circa 1946-50 and had to get rid of the surplus planes. so they dug a big hole and buried them to build a new runway for a major air force base, years later I asked a friend of mine who was a gov't testing enginner, what he thought of the idea of the planes beening somewhat intact. his first question/answer was impact by ground water & the pressue of the runway would overtime would collapse these P-51 mustangs into balls of aluminum
    yes I know the airforce base they are buried at and if they did there, they probably did it everywhere

    great story thanks for posting it
