JCB diggers help recovery of Second World War Spitfires buried in Burma
DIGGERS made by JCB are to embark on a mission to help recover Spitfire warplanes believed to have been buried in Burma as the Second World War came to a close.
The Rocester-based firm is supplying two machines to excavate for containers at Rangoon International Airport which are thought to contain more than 30 unassembled planes.
They have been discovered after a 17-year search by Lincolnshire farmer and aircraft enthusiast David Cundall.
Leading the dig will be JCB employee Oliver Keates, 31, of Cheadle, Staffordshire – the team leader of the world famous Dancing Diggers.

Mr Keates is a demonstrator based at JCB's World Headquarters in Rocester.
Last week, it was revealed that the excavation team found a wooden crate, which could contain a plane.
It was filled with muddy water which has made it difficult to see what was inside the container.
