A number of years ago, The New York Knicks basketball team was returning to the NY area. They were flying a chartered 737 into Westchester County Airport (HPN
). The team members were allowed to park their cars on the tarmac near the private hanger they used. As the plane taxied in, the pilot used almost full thrust on the outside engine as he turned the plane around. Head coach Dave Van Gundy's Honda Civic was blown off the ground and landed on top of two SUV
's belonging to other players. Van Gundy said that, even though the car had well over 100,000 miles on it, it was the best car he ever had and was very disappointed.
