      I hope you're just trolling..

      Anyways, judging by how the sand dunes shift all the time, I wouldn't be surprised if this thing was buried under the sand some time and only recently resurfaced to be discovered..

      I'm not. This is the Car Lounge and it shouldn't be here. There are the appropriate Aviation forums and so the thread should be in there. You can't just post threads in the wrong place to get more hits.

      So you're saying OP is post counting now?

      Or is that your typical behavior and you got annoyed he did it right?

      It may not have much sand - it looks like a lot of bare rock and cobble flats, and even with wind sheeting across it, if there's not a lot of sand around it'd just blow over and around rather than burying it.

      Must have been a hard landing - it looks like he brought it down on pretty rugged bare rock. He may have been injured in the crash, so my guess is that his remains are not terribly far from the wreck.

      If that's the case then just ignore me you moron. You're doing the same thing by responding to me.

      It's off topic it shouldn't be here. If you can't grasp that then you should go back to elementary school and grow half a brain.

      To get more hits?

      Chill out, dude. This is pretty interesting. It should probably moved to Off-Topic before other trolls throw a hissy-fit though

      Dude, shut up. Leave. The Thread is great and would be a loss if it was posted on off-topic because noone would see it.

      Its not like its about making a beef sandwich, its about a plane, with a combustion engine, fuel, has a wheel, has gauges........Plus everyone who is into mechanical part of cars also apreciate aviation. So either report to a Mod or shut it.

      Piss off moron, you can't make me leave. I'm the only one making sense in this dumb thread you should be happy I'm even posting.

      Just in case you missed the big forum heading at the top of the page; look again. It doesn't say the combustion engine lounge does it? It's the CAR lounge for gods sake.

      Why do you care do much? In what way is this affecting you?

      It's an amazing find and I'm glad to see it here because I have no desire to seek out 20 different sub forums, nor do I want to step into the realm of OT and deal with a bunch of 12 year olds.
