Video: Policeman uses car to stop plane, wins a million man points
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...
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.
Enjoy the video and curse yourself for not being as manly as these guys.
