Video: Policeman uses car to stop plane, wins a million man points
Stuff like this tends to only happen in the movies. A plane full of criminals is taking off while a plucky cop is trying to stop them at all costs.
The plane in this video is full of smugglers and $150,000 (£90,000) of stolen electronic goods. The incident, which occurred in Paraguay, isn't a one off. Smugglers have been flying in, stealing goods and then flying them to Brazil. A good Samaritan tipped the cops off and they decided to use their car to stop the plane from escaping.
Now, rather than use a plane-spec stinger or some sort of comedy net, the cops used all they had to hand – their SUV. You think hitting a pothole is painful? Try smacking a light aircraft's wing at full chat...
Enjoy the video and curse yourself for not being as manly as these guys.
