Stanley Coombe, a 91-year-old former British soldier who is one of eight people who said they have seen the buried British Spitfires, poses in front of displayed research materials and a photo of a British Spitfire plane (top R) during a press conference at a hotel 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)
