Speaking before the announcement to evacuate dozens of British Spitfires buried during the Second World War today, Lincolnshire farmer and aircraft enthusiast David Cundall said:
It is the biggest project I have ever taken on in my life. I did not realise it would take 16 years or quite a large amount of personal money. But I do not regret it.
I have always admired the Spitfire. It has a very special place in British history, from the Battle of Britain. To find one Spitfire would be a major find, let alone 36.
