Australia Now Also Has A Flying Honda
From magpies to Honda cars, everything flies in Australia
It is never a boring day in the land down under, from evil birds swooping down from the skies to kangaroos squaring up to people as if they were Mike Tyson himself, there’s always something fun (read: insane) happening in Australia. Now they have achieved a new level of crazy with the flying Honda.
That picture you see is not photoshopped. This actually happened. It was reported by 7NEWS Sydney and as you can see, the Perodua Myvi is no longer the only flying car out there. An Aussie has somehow managed to give this Honda Civic the ability to fly and land on top of what looks like a Mercedes Benz C-Class Coupe.
We often hear the expression “When the VTec kicks in” but this time, perhaps it kicked in a bit too much. This Honda owner learned that the hard way at Hurstville in Australia on 13 October 2022. The 73-year-old woman unwittingly did this while leaving Hurstville’s Westfield Shopping Centre at 10 a.m.
Apparently, she had confused the brake pedal with the accelerator and sent her Honda hilariously flying straight on top of the Merc and damaging another car right beside it. However, the Honda and Merc are now write-offs. I can only imagine what the owner of the Merc must have been feeling after seeing their precious car like that.
So what happened was that after the 73-year-old Honda owner mixed up the brake and accelerator pedal, she ran into a bollard which launched the car right on top of the parked Merc and one other car. While the force of the impact set off the airbags in both the Merc and the Honda, nobody was badly injured.
The insurance company will have to bear the headache when it comes to the Merc and as for the Honda, well, let’s just be grateful nobody was seriously hurt. Investigators say that the 73-year-old woman’s licence is now under review and let’s hope and pray that nothing too drastic happens.
Once again, we here at DSF would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone to always stay safe and alert while driving. Make sure to always stay attentive to your surroundings and do not ever distract yourself in any way while behind the wheel.
