YOUTUBER TREVOR JACOB ACCUSED OF CRASHING PLANE ON PURPOSE FOR VIEWS

WHAT HAPPENED?

YouTuber Trevor Jacob has been accused of crashing a plane on purpose for views and attention on social media.

With comments disabled and an investigation launched by the Federal Aviation Administration, many are questioning whether it was staged.

Shortly into the trek, his engine supposedly failed. With “no safe place to land,” he immediately jumped and glided down to safety.

I did not think I would make it out alive. I promised myself I’d always fly that route with a parachute after a friend died on the same flight path, and it came in handy.

While some labeled him a “con artist,” others went as far as to call him an “embarrassment to aviators everywhere.”

“It’s all very suspect,” flight instructor Robert Perry told the Santa Barbara Independent.

Jacob’s plane was allegedly in a “state of disrepair” before taking off, indicating the crash may have been planned.
