More on Spitfire Crash Paper Fragments

In addition to Kristi’s post of August 4, 2011 on the conservation of paper fragments found at a Spitfire Crash site in Donegal (https://derryandraphoe.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/spitfire-crash-paper-fragments/), I would like to advise any curious plane lovers and paper conservators to watch this great BBC programme about the dig of that particular Spitfire and how the paper fragments where excavated from the plane!

Enjoy!
