A California extreme sports blogger has been sentenced to six months in prison for intentionally crashing a plane and deceiving investigators in order to attract attention.

In November 2021, Trevor Jacob posted a video on his YouTube channel called "I Crashed." In the video, Jacob was flying a single-engine plane over Southern California when he suddenly experienced engine trouble. Jacob then parachuted to safety and recorded the crash. The video has received millions of views on YouTube.

After the accident, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) launched an investigation into the crash and asked Jacob to keep the wreckage. However, Jacob lied to investigators when he said he didn't know where the plane went down.

Investigators eventually found that Jacob and his friends flew the plane wreckage in a helicopter and cut it up in an attempt to cover up the evidence. Jacob's pilot's license was revoked because he intentionally crashed the plane and lied to investigators.

Jacob eventually pleaded guilty to faking the crash and was sentenced to six months in prison. Jacob's video has since been removed from YouTube, but can still be found on the web.

IT Home noted that many pilots and aviation experts have criticized Jacob's actions as not only dangerous, but also contrary to flight safety principles.
