WWII Mock Airplane Makes Emergency Landing On California Highway
Its not every day that you witness a World War II aircraft on your way to work, but for driver in Los Angeles, California this was a reality. It was something that you would be more likely to see in an Indiana Jones films.
The airplane crashed on the 101 freeway on Tuesday. The vintage airplane is decked out with full German Luftwaffe markings and burst into flames upon crashing down on the motorway. Miraculously, no body was hurt during these events, not even the pilot.
The plane itself isn’t actually one that was used by the German air force, it was a North American AT-6 and belonged to a group that is committed to preserving aviation history called Condor Squadron. Ordinarily, they use the planes to put on flypasts and mock dog fights, but on this occasion it went very wrong.
The aircraft was nearly able to make a successful landing once the pilot knew that there was a serious problem with it. He touched the plane down on the freeway safely but then collided with the central reservation, which caused the plan to burst into flames.
The pilot, Rob actually flies planes for a living for Alaska Airlines. He said that the engines failed and forced him to look for a suitable place to touch down. He said: “I picked a spot of the freeway where I knew there was a big section of cars that weren’t there. The engine completely failed. I was able to fortunately not hurt anybody, other than the airplane.”
