I remember watching something on TV about the 'Amber Room' that the nazis took and hid away. Yet to be found.
Remember something about that very vaguely. Have to do some googling in a bit now to refresh my memory.

Are those Vehicles from the First workd war? They look too new for that.
They do. And they look far too new to have been on Jersey in WW2.

I'm 100% confident that find is not "our" Nazi bunker.

There's various posts on the 28 Days Later Urbex forum about those vehicles and the rest of the cave network. Most of the APCs are 70s or later Panhards IIRC

Obviously not, since the article says that bunker is "....located somewhere in France."

How cool is that! Good luck to the Guy that found them, I can't help thinking the condition will be pretty poor, despite them being in shipping crates frown

I don't understand.
The article says that he has found them, but he is talking about 'they will be in good condition'.
If he found them, how does he not know?

They sent a small camera down a small hole and saw some crates. They have not yet dug them up and got their grubby little mitts on them.

I don't think he has actually found them as such - he just thinks he knows where they are. Which wasn't very difficult, as the locals knew all along!

Ah, thanks both, that explains it.
Note to self - must read articles more carefully.

Fiction but base din fact, not a bad read though:-

Reminds me of that new car they buried in the US back in the 50's. Was supposed to be like a time capsule and was dug up a few years ago. Even though they'd protected the car it had still become immersed in water over the decades, so wasn't in particularly good shape...

surely a waterproof vacuum bag would have been a far better preserving environment and probably cheaper, even in the 50s.

Just seen the video on youtube, and that is a massive fail!

That's what I was thinking about frown Seeing that old Plymouth all rusted up in the time capsule, makes me wonder how a Spitfire would hold up! Even aluminium oxidises. But I know they have found WW2 planes under the Ice that seem to have been preserved!

I suppose it would depend on the local geology and water table. If it was a dry, sandy environment then they might well be in very good condition. One imagines they know the ground conditions well enough to predict the likely state of preservation, specially if they're talking about getting them all flying again!
