Project Spitfire blog will track Wargaming.net fighter plane recovery efforts

Wargaming.net, the studio behind World of Warplanes and World of Tanks, will publish news regularly on its aircraft recovery expedition via the Project Spitfire Blog.

The company announced its plans to fund an excavation of British fighter planes in late October. Led by British aviation expert David Cundall, the expedition is working on uncovering planes apparently buried in Burma during World War II. More than 20 planes are rumored to be lost in Burma.

Tracy Spaight (pictured above), Wargaming's director of special operations, will write each entry. Project Spitfire currently includes four posts on how the project came to be, the history of the Spitfire, and the archeologists involved. The blog will be continually updated in the weeks to come.
