Andy Brockman project archaeologist of the attempt to dig up and recover a number of British World War II Spitfire Mark XIV fighter planes, buried in Myanmar at the end of the WWII, as they speak to members of the media during a briefing on how they intend to discover the aircraft, at a hotel near London's Heathrow Airport on Jan. 4, 2013. The iconic Battle of Britain Spitfires according to records were crated, stored and then buried rather than ship them back to Britain, at various locations around Myanmar as British forces left the country following the defeat of Japan at the end of WWII. The group leave to Myanmar on Jan 5. (Associated Press)
