This girl has guts!

A 17-year-old girl was arrested this week after authorities say she sneaked into a small plane at a central California airport and drove it into a chain-link fence.

CNN reports that the girl was spotted driving a plane on the tarmac at Fresno Yosemite International Airport, California on Wednesday, 18 December 2019.
