This is like something out of modern day Baywatch.
You’ve seen them before. Those small planes pulling a banner or sign to advertise something. Usually flying over a beach or crowded area so they can get the most eyeballs on it. I’ve always thought that it’s surprising there aren’t more accidents with them because of how dangerous it looks to fly with something hanging off your plane.
Well, it happened. A banner plane crashed out in California last Friday. Lucky for the pilot it was right near a local lifeguard competition which just happened to be happening on the beach he was flying near. Once they saw the plane go down a bunch of the lifeguards sprung into action and managed to save the pilot’s life.
