Man found guilty of endangering an aircraft PDF Print E-mail

Statement issued on behalf of Inspector Ron Peach:

‘Today at Salisbury Crown Court, Malcolm John Hughes aged 61 years from Raffin Lane, Pewsey was found guilty of endangering the safety of an aircraft.

On the afternoon of Wednesday 9th December 2009, an Army helicopter was hovering over a field in Pewsey on exercise. Hughes deliberately drove his vehicle at the tail of the aircraft, narrowly missing it and then gestured aggressively to the crew.

Fortunately the pilot was able to reposition to a place of safety and no one was injured during the incident.

Hughes not only risked his own life but his actions could have had very serious or even fatal consequences for the crew and such disregard for their safety was wholly irresponsible.

Hughes is due to appear for sentencing at Swindon Crown Court on 24th August 2011.’
