Pilot trying to sell plane has disastrous test flight
PORT ORANGE, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A pilot trying to sell his plane wound up in an embarrassing situation in the cockpit with a potential buyer in the passenger seat.
Mid-test flight, the Florida pilot had to make an emergency landing on the highway.
Apparently the vintage plane lost power during a few practice maneuvers.
No one was hurt and they were able to take off safely from the highway a short time later, and flew to and flew to an airport.
There's no word as to whether or not the potential buyer is still interested.
