As Dibnah passed Rüger’s aircraft it was seen to enter a spiral dive where it crashed Crowhurst in Surrey. Although the wreckage was cleared away at the time for some unknown reason, the remains of Rüger (the pilot) are rumoured to have been buried in an unmarked grave close to the crash site. The historical records clearly list Rüger as“Missing in Action”.
