australia 1941

the RAAF and the australian military are planning for an almost certain japanese invasion. the RAAF plans to use 'hit and fade' tactics and hides many Hurricanes, spitfires, p-40s etc, in very remote areas and along the coastline of western australia to use against the japanese. time went on and the invasion never came, but the aircraft were more or less forgotten about.the aircraft were boxed up and hidden underground and in caves and presumably are still in good condition.


i was just wondering if anyone else has heard about these planes or has any similar stories

I saw an article in Flight Journal a couple of years ago anout some Rancher in Australia who found a P-39 and restored it to flying condition. So I guess you never know. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
