Wrong Pilot Held in Bush No-Fly Violation
Wrong Pilot Held in Bush No-Fly Violation

Sun Jul 25, 6:42 AM ET

ARLINGTON, Texas - Police detained a family after airport authorities mistakenly reported their small plane had violated a no-fly zone near President Bush (news - web sites)'s Crawford ranch. In the confusion, the pilot they were seeking drove away.


Pilot Del Hinton, his wife, daughter and a friend landed at Arlington Municipal Airport about 2 p.m. Saturday after a trip to a casino in Shreveport, La. As soon as Hinton taxied his six-passenger plane into his hangar, an airport employee told him the Secret Service wanted to question him about his illegal flight through Waco.

When Bush is in Crawford, as he was this weekend, airspace is restricted within a 30-mile radius of his ranch.

Hinton's family was detained for an hour.

5. No person in their right mind would fly within 100 miles of crayfish tx.
I tend to think if it as a kind of rural Mordor.
I am surprised they ware not arrested and flown to GITMO.

6. That makes me feel safer.
Doesn't it you too? Caught'em at the airport this time. :eyes:
I remember a few years ago there were 4 big planes off course and it took almost 2 1/2 hours for them to do anything. Yeah, this is an improvement alright.

7. Let's just be happy that the weed that would be king didn't order
a shoot down. Of course, if this had happened they would have planted evidence at the scene to "confirm" that this family was in fact terraists.

We have to get this guy removed from office, we must!
