He actually got all the way down to Ellsinore Missouri where he landed on a road, he was caught on a grocery store trying to buy Gatorade which he had no money for. He was identified by the FBI as Adam Leon 31 AKA Yavuz Berke, a Canadian citizen originally from Turkey! No motive has been found yet.

Just saw that on CNN. Amazing the US let him fly for so long.

GTA came to my mind too, he probably tried to lower his wanted level by hiding the aircraft under the bridge. :( B) 7 hours! I didn't know Cessna's could do long-haul! But then they do cross the Atlantic on delivery flights with stopovers.

Ellsinore is only about 40-50 miles from me. :)It's in the sticks out there...Ozarks...Knowing that area as I do, this guy is probably lucky the FBI got him first, and not someone else.

hello, here in turkey, it turned out that the "real" Yavuz Berke had his ID card stolen in 2002. he was questioned by the police and the story changed direction. nobody has any idea whether the plane-jacking-guy is the person who stole the ID card or not..link:http://www.haberler.com/istanbul-daki-yavu...-ucagin-haberi/have you any further information about this story?

not sure if its true but i was told supposedly that his room mate was telling reporters hed been practicing the flight for months on the ground. that would make sence considering he was able to land the plane safely on a small road and excape (he would have gotten away with it if he had enough money for the gatorade...)
