Hello Chris,

Unfortunately, I am not able to provide much info's about that missing aircrew. It is said bodies (or parts of) were carried away by a now-deceased witness and buried somewhere else at an unknown distance from the crash. I went to the crashsite and found the aircraft impact and numerous bits spread up to 150m thus we can imagine the state of the remains... But then begin the hypothesis, 'what if' and so...
The crashsite is known but the 'burial' place may remain unknown for ever.
A propeller was found at the site many years ago.

I would be delighted to help relatives (up to my knowledge) if needed.

Best regards

ClinA-78
