Classic aeroplane in German WWII livery crashes on Californian highway

An eery incident for those passing the scene

A CLASSIC aircraft dressed in the livery of a WWII aeroplane from the German Luftwaffe crashed on a highway in the United States of America.

Captured on camera by a motorist passing the incident on Highway 101, near the city of Agoura Hills, the North American T-6 Texan trainer aircraft had hit the deck after losing all power shortly after taking off from a nearby airport.

The two-seater aeroplane came down on the median of the road, and caught fire after crashing into the road. The pilot was retrieved from the plane without injury, and the stricken aircraft didn’t hit any vehicles on the highway.

The T-6 Texan is used by the local Condor Squadron group in air parades, according to reports.
