That was my first thought, I can't believe they went for it. They must not know what they're worth.

You know very well between the "Grass Hut" governments and the very corrupt London Socialist he will end up broke. If the planes are found the British Government will want these horrible weapons dumped in the ocean.

There are a lot of misunderstanding on this forum on what is allowed and not allowed in the UK. You would wonder how civilians own these in the UK.

If you have not seen "The Battle of Britain", it is a must see. One of the best...

Hey guys, I've seen the Spitfires with my own eyes. They were buried along with some Jeeps and brand new Harley-Davidson army bikes . To get your Spitfire, Harley or Jeep new in the crate, send $50 to my Ebay account ...
