A single engine vintage airplane has crashed on the 101 freeway in Agoura Hills, west of Los Angeles, California at about 1:45 pm local time.
The aircraft, reportedly a WWII-era North American SNJ-5 (a variant of the T-6 Texan WWII warbird), painted in Nazi Germany’s color scheme, crashed in the middle of the busy street, bursting into flames ‘for a few minutes’ and shutting down the freeway.
