They pieced together his identity by examining bits of his service record found in the rubble. "It was not in one piece, but it was enough to read his name," Sarauw said.
His name was also written on a small calendar book, and initials etched on his watch were the final clue.
Wunderlich's military records showed he was born in Bavaria in 1925. He died unmarried and with no children. German authorities reported that his parents died in 2006, and his only remaining relative, a sister, died around the same time.
A German commission will reclaim Wunderlich's remains and bury him in Germany, but the plane wreckage and his personal belongings will remain in Jutland at the museum.
