The Car Drop
A stunt I saw at a couple airshows in the 70's and 80's...   All day long the announcer was calling out a ficticious
car and license plate number, saying the car was improperly parked in an emergency lane.  A while later, the
announcement was made again, but this time it was announced the car was being towed...  In this case, a
Sikorsky Skycrane picked up the car, flew it out across the airfield, and dropped it from about 500 feet.  In
reality, the car had been obtained from a local junk yard and "planted" to be used in the stunt.
Same prank, different airshow...
