Okay, maybe it won't be quite THIS dramatic

If you happen to be cruising south of Baltimore on Route 50 this week and you notice a massive plume of billowing black smoke, don’t panic. 

It’s (probably) a fake plane crash.

According to NBC Washington, Sirens Media, a Maryland production company, will be filming a dramatic disaster scene at the Freeway Airport in Bowie this week, complete with three days of smoke, explosions, and various pyrotechnics. Please, don’t call the fire department–it’s all just for a TV show.

In a case of the movies parroting reality, however, the Route 50 location of this simulated plane crash was actually the site of a real small plane accident just a couple months ago, when a Cessna 172 being flown by a student pilot smashed into a fence. No one was hurt; hopefully the same will be true about the made-for-TV plane crash, too.
