ARCADIA, Fla. – After doing a little bit of digging, we may have found the place where two men were headed when they crash-landed their plane in the Everglades.
Jose Ecarri and his pilot friend were flying from Tamiami to Arcadia to grab some tacos on Tuesday, when the engine of their small plane failed and they crash-landed in a remote area of the Florida Everglades. The friends were not hurt in that emergency landing.
Business owners, Yolanda and Jose Hernandez, said they see a lot of pilots at their food truck in Aviation City in Arcadia for “Taco Tuesday” every week. Taqueria Queretaro, sets up near the City of Arcadia Municipal Airport, serving what they call delicious and authentic Mexican food every Tuesday.
In a Facebook post, they said pilots fly in from all over the state, and are glad to see that their patrons from South Florida are doing well.
They’ve even offered to treat the flying duo to some tacos during their next Taco Tuesday.
