Search for Pilot Who Flew Under Big Mac

Investigators are searching for the pilot of a plane that flew under the Mackinac Bridge a few weeks ago.

A U.S. Coast Guard crew captured video of the stunt on June 28th. Michigan State Police officials are asking the public for additional information. The pilot could be charged with a misdemeanor.

There’s just 150 feet of clearance between the underside of the bridge and the water.

It’s not the first time an airplane has been flown under the bridge. On April 24th, 1959, Air Force Captain John Lappo piloted a B-47 Stratojet bomber through the gap. Lappo was court martialed.

If you know anything about the June fly-under, contact the Michigan State Police, or the Coast Guard.
