WWII Nazi Plane Crashes in Flames on Highway 101 in the Valley
Nazi Plane Up in Flames on L.A. Freeway
A vintage World War II fighter plane — for the Nazis, not the good guys — crash landed on one of L.A.’s busiest freeways … and miraculously the pilot survived.

The plane slammed down Tuesday afternoon on the 101 Highway in Agoura Hills — just outside L.A. — and went up in flames. Somehow, the pilot managed to avoid any cars on the freeway, and reportedly got it down cleanly … until one of the wings clipped the center divider. That’s when the fuel ignited.
The aircraft appears to be a Bf-109, a workhorse aircraft in the German Luftwaffe. It’s unclear if the plane is a replica or the real deal. The pilot was the only person on board, and was somehow uninjured.
