  Plane Crash Is April Fool's Prank
YUCAIPA, Calif. -- It's the plane crash that wasn't in Southern California.
Bill Cheesman Jr. set up a fake plane crash at his Yucaipa business on Monday as an April Fool's joke. He said the scene has drawn lots of comments. He alerted the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department before the sun rose on his prank.
A Yucaipa businessman staged an elaborate April Fool's joke on Monday.
Billy Cheesman Jr. used a forklift to arrange a small aircraft on the fence that runs in front of his equipment rental business, as if it had nosedived there.
He also strung yellow caution tape around to make it resemble a crash scene.
Cheesman says someone gave him the two-seat experimental plane and he's been trying to figure out what to do with it.
He notified the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department before he set up the prank at Redlands Yucaipa Rentals.
