That’s exactly what happened in California’s Mojave Desert last week, though.
Public relations rep Mike Massee captured video of a retired 747 being lifted off the ground by the winds exceeding 70 mph.
The jet’s engines have been removed, making the jumbo jet somewhat tail-heavy, but it’s still an amazing sight to behold.
The next day, the plane was found to have turned a full 45 degrees from where it had previously been parked.
Don’t mess with Mother Nature!
