In the 1950s, a plane trying to make it through a thunderstorm to land at the Greenville airport crashed into the mountainside just a few yards off of Highway 107 near Walhalla, South Carolina. The wreckage of his small, single-engine aircraft was found but the pilot’s body was never recovered.

But, that doesn’t mean that no one has seen him since then.
