    There is a detailed description of the crash of HD319, 5 OTU at http://www.101nisquadron.org/?page_id=659 . The wreckage was not located until 1960, and no human remains were identified. The wreckage suggests the aircraft impacted at high speed, and at least the pilot's seat was occupied at impact.
