      Well... if the soil is prefectly dry, then it might be possible. The machines
      might even be in good shape if they were not crushed.

      People are recovering amazing things. A few years ago a group of well-funded
      people dug a Lockeed P-38 (the airplane) out of a glacier on Greenland and,
      after a large infusion of cash, made it fly again. So recovering some Lisas
      from a landfill should be a piece of cake!
