Missing some intake pipes, wonder if they were taken as souvenirs?  In surprisingly good shape otherwise, they say he made a decent landing before he died.


Later investigation shows that he was shot through the left side of his chest which is when his DR1 was seen to lurch upwards. He then had 20 secs to land before dying from such a wound, which he did. The bullet came from a Lewis gun manned by an Australian.
