YouTuber facing 20 years in prison for intentionally crashing plane

Recommended Posts


Trevor Daniel Jacob, a 29-year-old YouTuber who intentionally crashed his airplane while pretending it was an unavoidable accident, has pleaded guilty to federal charges and faces...

Lied to federal investigators about the location of the wreckage....because he and a friend had already picked up the wreckage by helicopter.  He then cut up the plane into pieces and threw it away in multiple places.

20 years seems like a lot until you factor in the lying and the destroying evidence and covering up.


Probably won't serve a full 20 still, though.

Probably right but they will still have to make an example out of him.  With all the dumb stuff people do for attention, they need to stop this type of situation dead in it's tracks.

I remember an episode of Mythbusters where they needed to test if a sticker on one of the blades of a helicopter would cause an imbalance, and make it crash, but they couldn't actually test it for real because it's illegal to intentionally crash aircraft.
