London: Sylvester Stallone wanted to feature vintage bomber as a prop on the red carpet of ‘The Expendables’, but was devastated when he realised the craft had been turned into a heap of rusting metal.
Co-star Jason Statham wasn`t surprised - because the 60-year-old plane shouldn`t really have been in the sky for the film.
"We found out the plane was barely airworthy... It hadn`t been serviced in 30 years,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
"Sly wanted to bring it in for the premiere and we found out it had been crushed into a cube... never to be flown again," he added.
