Guess you have a LONG list of stuff you can't get over then considering the many warbirds trashed over the years by different guys.

And you are very welcome.

These P-40 Spitfire jet fighters were buried in the original Styrofoam crates in 1945 at the end of the Vietnam war at an airfield near Bangkok, Burma to prevent them from falling into the hands of the approaching North Korean forces.
