If your plane crashed on the way to a college football game and you survived, would you make sure you were still able to get there by kickoff? If you answered “no” to that question, you probably aren’t an SEC fan. If you’re anything like the four men whose plane went down on their way to the Alabama-Ole Miss game on Saturday, you wouldn’t have missed a minute of the action.
On Monday, NBC 15 TV in Mobile, Ala. shared the story of four friends who cheated death on their way to Tuscaloosa this past weekend when one of the engines from their small plane stopped working. They were 20 miles from the airport when the other engine started sputtering and Captain George Arnold, the plane’s pilot, had to make an emergency landing on a dirt road.
