Man tries to sell upside down plane

Surely he can't be serious

Man tries to sell upside down plane
11 September 2012

While we're not aviation or meteorological experts, it's probably safe to assume that once a plane has crashed after being dragged through a twister, it's no longer airworthy.

However, for daredevils who fancy taking a risk (and who own a pilot's licence), then this could be your lucky day.

A US man who crashed his plane when flying over Death Valley is trying to sell his upside down wreck for £10,000.

The seller, who calls himself Jim on Craigslist, explains how the accident happened in his 1968 Cessna 172 H model:

"It started out as a bad hair day, ya know kinda windy, got called out to plow, course here in DV (Death Valley) we plow gravel off the road, anyway must have had a twister come thru so I spent the afternoon flipping my plane."
