ZE PLANE, ZE PLANE?
LOUISA, Ky. — The rumors have been flying since an apparent plane crash showed up behind Joe Young Insurance in Louisa several weeks ago.
From a prop for an X Box game, to it has been there and was dug up from years ago. The Lazer wanted to set the record straight for the inquiring minds that want to know.
Eddie Blankenship, owner of several businesses in Louisa, owns the site where the apparent plane crash is located, solved the mystery in an interview over the weekend.
“It’s a prop for a business sign,” Blankenship, who owns most of the billboards in Louisa, said. “We are not finished with it yet. There is lots more coming as soon as I get the hill taken all the way down for more parking and putting the old Dollar store building back up beside the building that is currently there.”
Blankenship said the most popular rumor is that they dug it up while excavating the property for the new building and billboard.
“A lot of people have asked me if we dug it up, maybe a plane crash from years ago. I’ve heard all kinds of rumors. It’s been fun and interesting! Blankenship grinned.”
He did not say where he got the wrecked plane.
Even if it wasn’t there for the reason’s the people of Louisa believed… I agree, it has been interesting!
