It’s 2018, And A Nazi Plane Just Crash-Landed Onto A California Highway

The Second World War may have officially ended 73 years ago, but it still managed to produce a new casualty Tuesday afternoon, when a Model WWII-era German plane crash-landed on a California highway.

(Don’t worry, no one was hurt.) 


The small vintage plane nosedived into the 101 Freeway around 1:15, the flaming wreck draping over the highway divider. The LA County Fire Department was quick to the scene, and amazingly, the pilot walked away unharmed.

The news quickly spread across Twitter, with several commenting on how the incident serves as a metaphor for the current political climate in the US.


The plane was later confirmed to be part of the Condor Squadron vintage flying club, a group dedicated to preserving aviation history. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board say they are investigating the crash.

Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in.
