>>> it was a sales pitch that went horribly wrong and all played out thousands of miles in the air but this is where it ended up on a florida highway. he was trying to sell his vintage plane. he was right in the middle of a test flight with a potential buyer when the plane lost power. he to then land on the highway but after further inspection decided to go ahead and take off again using the road as a run way. no word on whether or not the sale went through although if i were a perspective buyer i'm not sure i'd stay in the plane.

>> a little discount.

>> the price going down right there with the plane.
