Hopefully the remains can help identify the pilot and give him a proper burial, so there is one less family with an MIA. As for the aircraft, no info on the condition of it?, would be great if it could be restored or scavenged for some parts for another restoration.

They recovered some documents in bits of clothing which could help to identifying the pilot. However, a WWII enthusiast who runs a historical website recording all known aircraft crashes(allied and axis) on danish soil, claims he already knows(or has very strong indication) who the pilot was and that it should concern this entry:

According to him, this is the only crash in the region for which the exact location was unknown, while all other have been accounted for.

 

The crash site was a bog at the time of the war, which probably explains why the Germans were unable to recover the remains of the pilot and aircraft. Also it must have been a rather violent crash(pretty much nose-down impact), since the aircraft was found buried 5-7 meters into the ground. So there isn't much left of it - so far the largest part recovered is the engine block.

The pilot has now been identified by the documents found in the wreck, but it turns out that it wasn't the one in the above link after all. Since all other have been accounted for, it could be that he has already had an official burial.

What a life he could have had, always makes me sad.
