Project leader David Cundall speaks to journalists before a press conference on a planned expedition to search for buried British Spitfire planes in Myanmar, at a press conference in Yangon on January 9, 2013. A British-led excavation team hunting for dozens of rare Spitfires in Myanmar said during the press conference on January 9 they were confident of recovering the World War II-era planes after finding a crate buried in the ground. Britain is thought to have buried brand new planes in 1945 as they were surplus by the time they arrived by sea. AFP PHOTO / Soe Than WIN (Photo credit should read Soe Than WIN/AFP/Getty Images)
