I read somewhere that as recent as the 1970's, Zero's were being found often in fair condition in remote Pacific island's, and came across this which is interesting stuff

BigGrin Hi all,

A very interesting and certainly very moving story Mr. T, thanks for sharing it!! Crying Crying

Can't imagine how that woman felt finding her Dads' remains still in his plane, or how Mr. Smith must have felt having all those bad memories, and
probably some good ones as well, come flooding back at the sight of his old aircraft buried in the jungle!! Crying Crying

Cheers Mr. T ThumpUp
