...do a search on Google for the TIGHAR organization and there are articles on the search for these.

(I followed Dave's suggestion and was led to the The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery's website at http://www.tighar.org/ . I then entered "underground" in the site's search engine. The articles listed, in general, pertained to Operation Sepulchre:

"Like Chariots In A Pharoah's Tomb At the close of World War Two, so the story goes, underground bombproof hangars were sealed by retreating German forces, or by advancing Allied units fearful of boobytraps, thereby entombing intact Luftwaffe aircraft ..."

Operation Sepulchre also has its own section which can be accessed directly from the homepage. A CD on this operation is offered for sale.

Regards,
Richard)
