Famous ‘Fantasy Island’ plane used to smuggle drugs into Oklahoma

“It was the centerpiece of the classic ’70s and early ’80s TV classic ‘Fantasy Island.’ But when the show was canceled, the plane went from ‘famous’ to ‘notorious.’ The production company unloaded the sea plane.  It would later be used to smuggle drugs from Columbia into the United States.  Years ago, OBN agents intercepted the aerial icon during a cocaine drop in S.E. Oklahoma. After years of secrecy, OBN revealed the unique drug bust on their Facebook page Monday morning.”
