Australian man drives light plane down main street for a drink at the pub
A man who taxied his light plane down a key street in Western Australia’s Pilbara region and parked it outdoors a pub is expected to be charged.
Newman police sergeant Mark McKenzie stated the plane had its propeller running, its wings removed and was being steered by foot pedals on Friday.
The man parked the plane outdoors the Newman Hotel and was then interviewed by police.
“It was a pretty stupid thing to do,” McKenzie stated.
“Kids were coming dwelling from school. It could have been pretty ugly. All he needed was 1 gust of wind … since devoid of the wings, it’s not stable.
“People believe it was a bit of a laugh but it was incredibly dangerous and we’re not very happy with it.”
McKenzie said police had examined the Road Site visitors Act but would probably charge the man beneath the Criminal Code.
“I would assume there would be an offence under the Criminal Code that may possibly match the bill.
“I’m confident that he will be charged with something quickly.”
