Interesting question of ownership. They'll be worth a few coins by the
time they hit the market.

I really wonder at what kinds of corrosion may be there, despite the
pickling efforts taken when they were buried. Ground water and soil
acidity play a major role here.

Probably a ~bit~ less than in the case of the beached Spit linked
above... =) I wonder how much of the recovered airframe in such a
case can actually be used in the restoration.

The Flying Heritage Collection here in my neighborhood has a Bf 109E
that was similarly recovered from a French beach.

I guess they'd still have to sand back the paintwork ?
