Crime: Drunk pilot flies across Channel to fill up with cheap fuel in Kent
A drunk Belgian pilot who tried to save money buying aviation fuel in the UK has landed himself a £7,000 fine after being caught five-times over the legal drink-fly limit.
Arne Wante, chief executive of Travel Expo thought fuel was cheaper in
England, but was stopped by an immigration officer after landing his
light aircraft at Lydd Airport in Kent on May 19.
