Cool Brazilian Police Take down Plane with car...



Quote:
Watch a police officer stop this plane with his car

John McLane's got nothing on this real Brazilian Federal Police Officer, who use his cop car to take down a plane loaded with smugglers and $150,000 of stolen electronics.

Smugglers have been flying into Paraguay, snagging stolen electronics (and a bicycle), and then flying them back to Brazil using this plane and runway. Someone tipped off the Feds in RibeirŠo Preto, Brazil who descended on the criminals with what looks like a lowly Chevy Trailblazer.

After smashing into the plane with the front of the car they were able to take down the aircraft, seize the goods, and arrest five individuals. It's a huge blow to organized crime in Brazil as it's suspected the aircraft was also being used for drug smuggling.

The cost to replace the windshield? About $300.

Actually a very stupid way to stop a plane. The fuel is stored in the wing of the plane and if they had ruptured the wing they could have blown up themselves along with the plane. They were lucky, not smart.

Fuel tank is not that far out into the wing, only about the first 1/3 from wing root, collision would not set it off anyhow. Amazing video though, I bet the pilot's butthole puckered when he saw them running him down!

Pilot is lucky he wasn't in the air yet, it could have been real ugly had he been a foot or so off the ground.
