London, April 14 (ANI): British and Burmese authorities could work together to find the iconic Spitfire aircrafts buried in Burma during the Second World War, the UK officials have said.
The planes were buried in 1945 by Britain's' Royal Air Force (RAF) amid fears that they could either be used or destroyed by Japanese forces.
The issue of the missing planes has been raised following Prime Minister David Cameron's meeting with Burmese President Thein Sein.
The BBC quoted a Downing Street source, as saying that it was 'hoped this would be an opportunity to work with the reforming Burmese government'.
"The Spitfire is arguably the most important plane in the history of aviation, playing a crucial role in the Second World War," the source said.
"It is hoped this will be an opportunity to work with the reforming Burmese government, uncover, restore and display these fighter planes and get them gracing the skies of Britain once again," the source added.
According to some officials, President Thein Sein was 'very enthusiastic' about the prospect of finding and restoring the planes. (ANI)
