Yesterday we learned the extraordinary story of private equity guy Russell Stildolph, left, and his flying Porsche. At the time, we asked you to estimate how fast the Norwalk resident got his 911 Carrera up to before launching it 35 feet in the air and parking/crashing on the lawn of a woman not expecting to have a car striking the second story of her house. Today, some additional information has emerged.
1) According to this report- the car was "airbore for 45 feet," rather than reaching a height of 35 (or however many) feet, as previous reports suggested.
2) Having said that, Russell did get some nice air, having "struck the roof overhang and center support beam of the home," as evidence showed, before the car "fell backward and landed on its roof, facing away from the house."
3) Despite having said he doesn't remember how he got the car to fly or much else, on account of the drinks he'd had, Stildolph could recall one important fact: "...he said he had been going 35 mph."
