Leaving the Scence of an Accident

I include this mainly because I have a funny mental image of a couple of guys crashing the plane and then wandering off to a bar for a drink:

A single-engine plane has crashed near the airport in Bagdad, a
remote community northwest of Wickenburg, but the pilot apparently
walked away and has not been found, authorities said Monday.

The wreckage of the downed plane, a Beech Model B23, was discovered
early Sunday about 100 yards south of the Bagdad Airport runway, said
Dwight D'Evelyn, a spokesman for the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

    I knew of joyriders trashing cars, but this is ridiculous!

  2. Jim Collins:

    All depends on what they were carrying in the plane. The waters around the Bahamas are full of wrecked aircraft. Drug runners ditch them along side boats to bring drugs into the US.

  3. Larry Sheldon:

    I'd go with the stolen-drug-or-people-coyote theory.

    Why no markings?

    What's the old saying? "Any one you can walk away from is a good landing" That's not a crash, it's a landing!
