Better if they were buried in a frozen place perhaps like the B-29 and the P-38 that were salvaged. I think the B29 was repaired and made flyable but burned before it could be flown to safety though. I imagine such a hot, wet climate would not be favorable for any wood but as you point out. I agree that if out of the 20 enough parts are salvaged to make up 3 or 4 Spits it would be an inestimable triumph.
Thanks for posting.
