WARPLANE enthusiasts are this month planning to excavate the remains of a Spitfire which crashed in Birkenhead Park during the Second World War.

The Spitfire Mark 2A crashed on October 14, 1942 in the lower park, close to Park Road East and the Cole Street entrance.

Wonder if its by the old Air Cadets building which has unfortunately been knocked down now.

I dont ever remember seeing anything unusual as I used to play in there when I was a kid.

Must be buried deep
