    All Things Considered Myanmar Spitfires Since the end of the World War II, a fantastic tale has lived on among veterans and aviation buffs. It says that British troops leaving Burma in 1945 buried dozens of Spitfire fighter planes in several locations around the country, also known as Myanmar. For the past 16 years, an English farmer has hunted the buried Spitfires. And now he believes he's close to unearthing them, and perhaps, restoring the fabled war planes to flying condition. Skeptics don't believe him and rival search teams are hoping he will fail.
