Myanmar (Burma)

Post by Nomdeplume_30 » Fri Mar 24, 2006 7:12 am

Hi Guys

Been travelling South East Asia for the last 6 months visiting every war museum in the area I know of. On a trip in the far north of Myanmar (Burma) I met a guide with an interest in aviation. After a few discusions he told me of some know wrecks. Unfortunatley if a wreck is located near a town the wreck is quickly melted down in pots and pans or made into knifes which are highly valued for there high quality aluminuim. I explained that it was more important that the wrecks where report but I think as the wrecks are found they will be destroyed with no regard for the pilots remains. I told him to keep me updated on any new finds and sent him some aviation magazines with WWII restorations in them.
