Most folks will do just about anything for a good plate of tacos.

Hey we get it and totally understand, though these two Florida men may just take the cake when it comes to celebrating Taco Tuesday.

Jose Ecarri and his pilot friend decided to fly to get some tacos for Taco Tuesday. The flight was from Tamiami, Florida to Arcadia, a distance of about 170 miles, which should normally take around 40 minutes.

Unfortunately, the plane's only engine failed and they had to crash land in a remote area of the Florida Everglades. Luckily, both men escaped the crash completely unharmed.

Ecarri told WPLG, "People don’t usually survive this kind of stuff, and the rate we were descending, we were in a dive. I was thinking about my grandpa. He’s up there and he will save me. He saved me today."

No doubt it was a terrifying experience, but a Taco Tuesday these men will never forget. Ecarri says, "Not a good day to get tacos."

All was not lost, however. He and his mother said they were still planning to get tacos later that day.
