He's not too awful bright I think...

Why not head the plane south and have it crash in the Gulf?

No airplane, no body, no worries...

Somebody's radar would have picked it up as it headed out over the Gulf, he could have transmitted his distress call... Instead of Birmingham go to Mobile, they have hotels and storage facilities there too... Jump on his scooter and ride off into the sunset...

Probably a foolproof plan...

Instead he has it crash land on earth, no body to be found, and the pilot's door swinging in the breeze...

O well...

I think the plane going down in the Gulf was his plan. It ran out of fuel too soon. So maybe the threat to the Floridans wasn't intentional. Not having the tank topped off wasn't too bright.
Calling a mayday about chest pains/heart attack would have been believable.
Still, the Air Force pilots reported the door being open.
