    Motorist Calls 911, Responders Find 2 Foot Long Aircraft
    Apparently those radio-controlled models can be pretty lifelike, at least from a distance. A motorist crossing the Interstate 526 bridge over the Wando River in Charleston, South Carolina saw a smoking aircraft plunging towards the water and called 911, scrambling three fire trucks and a battalion chief to the scene.

    The Charleston Post and Courier reports that when they arrived, they found a Charleston police officer talking to two people under the bridge who were flying their model RC helicopter.

    Charleston Police Public Information Officer Mark Ruppel told the paper that the officer had realized the crashing aircraft was not the real thing, but went to investigate anyway. We at ANN suppose the moral of the story is that anything that even resembles an aircraft falling from the sky is going to attract someone's attention, so be sure you're careful out there no matter what you're flying.

    Can you believe it??? I don't think I'd know what to think either! Thank goodness no one was hurt!​

    yep, glad no one was hurt, but it sure did cost the city/county/citizens a lot to send out those trucks.

    I hope it was a mistake and not a practical joke.
