Other stories I read was they believe he tried to walk out. The battery and radios were found removed so he must have tried to get the radio to work. His chute was found tied to the side of the plane which they believe indicates he was trying to use it for shade.

Initially I believe this was a flight of 2 and they got split up.

I heard about that I am sure the entire warbird community is anxious to see if these are in as good of condition as the article makes them seen. I did read that someone may be trying to get them before the guy who found them can which would be a shame. The story I read was one of the backers he approached is trying to cut him out and get them for themselves.
