JUST IN: Nazi Plane Crashes On Los Angeles Highway – Irony Goes Unseen


If one were to write a novel in which Nazi memorabilia fell from the sky the day after the president of the United States announced himself as a nationalist, the writer would be criticized for making their metaphors for too literal to be believed.

An NBC News affiliate in Los Angeles reports that a small plane bearing Nazi insignia crashed onto the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills in California.

‘The North American SNJ-5 airplane with the pilot aboard as the solo occupant crashed near the center lanes of the northbound 101 Freeway near Liberty Canyon Road around 1:15 p.m., according to the LA County Fire Department.

‘The plane’s wing, still aflame, was draped over the center divider as crews worked to extinguish the blaze and amazed commuters recorded video.’

Drivers were astonished to witness the plane burning and many took photos and videos on their cell phones. Social media users immediately noticed that the plane bore markings such as the iron cross, a common Nazi insignia that was painted on Luftwaffe aircraft during World War II.

Police say the mystery of where the plane originated from is no mystery at all. In fact, the plane came from an aviation history preservation organization. How it ended up in the middle of a California highway is currently under investigation.

‘The vintage aircraft featuring German markings on the wings is usually seen in parades and belongs to the Condor Squadron club, Van Nuys Airport said. The club non-profit organization — founded by WWII pilots in 1965 — is dedicated to preserving aviation history.

‘The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the crash.’
