    Based on a viral video allegedly from an aircraft enthusiast event, someone used a Tesla’s autopilot feature to call their car to them—and watched it slow-motion crash into a very expensive jet parked on the tarmac instead. https://www.vice.com/en/article/pkp5pk/watch-an-autopiloted-tesla-crash-into-a-multi-million-dollar-jet
    Tesla Model Ys have a feature called “Smart Summon” that, when activated, will call the car to its owner; for example, bring it from the back of a parking lot to the curb of a store where they’re waiting. In this video, the Tesla in question creeps up to a Cirrus Vision jet, collides with its tail, and keeps pushing, moving the more than 1.5-ton jet around in a half-circle before it stops.
