Good on that pilot!
If he had bailed, no telling where the plane would have crashed and what damage it would have done on the ground, let alone destroying itself.

Mind boggling they forgot it, or didn't figure it was worth the effort to retrieve...

He landed 18-20 miles north of me yesterday. It's not on the list of scheduled stops.

Neither the paper newspaper article, nor the online article, gave an indication why he was there.

I've had a look at silverspitfire.com and it doesn't shed any light on why the aircraft stopped at Bowling Green either.

Twitter and Facebook feeds linked in that site are similarly bereft of detail.

Unfortunately the links given in your post aren't available this side of the Atlantic but I did find a report plus video here:

I've been leaning towards a refueling stop.

I just get that feeling.

He was probably refueling but I still wonder why he was that far from the published route? Giving Green Stamps? Wouldn't take his credit card up north? Got an email with tits?

There used to be wild shit in the sky, and wilder promises.
