Crash Landing

Sunday, 18th February 2007 by

Nestled within the trees of this suburban park is a crashed plane, that's been there since 1985!

The story goes that the pilot ran out of fuel over the city of Sao Jose dos Campos and was forced to land in the small park. Then, for some unknown reason, the Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia was never removed.

Embraer's headquarters are actually located just down the road from the crash site, but it's not a very good advertisement for their products...

Updated: It would seem that this plane didn't crash after all, it is a prototype model of the Embraer 110 Bandeirante on permanent display. You can see ground-level pictures on and Flickr.
