Goto Google Earth and then to Florida. Then search for 'jumbolair aviation'. You see the airstrip and the trees they have flown into. Very good resolution. I guess they should have stopped at the four bars on the north side of the runway. Very tragic..

Look at the exhausts & wheel...looks like an M5....unrecognizable! wonder how fast they were going?

Drive really carefully guys!
If it M5, they would easily hit 160-170mph. What spped would make 4000lbs car flew 15 feet above the ground? Just hope no drug/alcohol involved.

yup! 4000lb with 5 guys in it...the car FLEW 200-feet and then hit the tree while it was in air...they must have been driving real fast and didn't realize the land ended till it was too late.

Damn. Cannot even recognize if that was a car to start out with. I lost two of my 18 yr old cousins (both brothers) in a high speed joy ridding accident 2 months ago. Just reaffirms that car accidents is the number one killer for the 18-25 yr old bracket.
18yrs with 500hp car out after a party? That not a good combo and hard to keep thing in check. I personally lost 17yrs bro in a car accident over a year ago and the hardest thing to overcome even today is to imagine what he would be like if he still alive. Life is short but u got to respect it.

My condolences for those who lost loved ones.

I'm sure glad I didn't have an M5 when I was was a teen, might not be here today.

I lost my brother 17 years ago when he , his girlfriend and two fraternity brothers died in a car accident coming home from Vegas, these stories always hit home.

I see many younger members on this board, I'm not only envious to imagine having such a car at a early age...but fearful of what I did with far inferior hardware as a youth. Take this story to heart.
