The 'Expendables' actor and director planned to bring it for the film's premiere, but he found out it had been 'crushed into a cube.'

's dream of flying in the vintage bomber featured in his new blockbuster "" for the film's Los Angeles premiere was dashed when he learned the aircraft had been crushed.

The actor/director was hoping to use the old plane as a prop on the red carpet and he was devastated when he realized the craft had been turned into a heap of rusting metal. Co-star wasn't surprised - because the 60-year-old plane shouldn't really have been in the sky for the film.

He explains, "We found out the plane was barely airworthy... It hadn't been serviced in 30 years. Sly wanted to bring it in for the premiere and we found out it had been crushed into a cube... never to be flown again."
