Model plane tries to take on real plane – Australian FAA not amused

This is one of those video clips that you have to see to believe. An Australian model plane enthusiast/idiot, took his model plane and came within about 100 feet of hitting a real plane.

The Virgin Blue jet was not hit, but the model plane appeared to get caught in the turbulence from the jet engines and plummeted to the ground.

To make the video clip more “exciting”, the maker even added some Top Gun music. The Australian CAA (their equivalent of our FAA) is investigating.
