The pilot of a light aircraft that flew dangerously low over Bedlinog has been sacked.
Capt. Dave Donut took the light aircraft for a tour of the South Wales valleys last week. But his low flying caused panic among the locals and he has since been removed from duty.
Capt. Donut told WalesOnCraic:
“I had two guests over from America and I was flying low so I could show them the local people out and about doing their day-to-day chores. I wasn’t expecting for my plane to be attacked in the way it was, nor was I expecting to be sacked. I’m the only one offering tour flights of the Welsh valleys – it’s something the Welsh Tourist Board have never even considered. You’d think I’d be doing them a favour. Anyway. Bollocks to them. Now that I’m sacked, I can catch up on my backlog of Masterchefs. In a way, it’s a blessing in disguise.”
A spokesman for the Welsh Pilots Association said:
“We take this kind of this very seriously indeed. Low flying can lead to planes alarming locals who have never seen one before.”
