Student's Father Denies His Son Flew Low
Not again... a student in Derry,
NH is in hot water with the FAA, over an alleged aerial stunt
earlier this week.
Police say the unnamed high school senior buzzed the Pinkerton
Academy Tuesday morning, flying as low as 250 feet above the ground
as he circled the campus.
Students thought it was a stunt... or maybe a student prank, as
it is that time of year. The FAA wasn't laughing, though... and
after tracing the flight back to an airport in nearby Lawrence,
officials with that agency had a few questions for the aerial
The FAA later released the boy, but he still faces a meeting
with school officials over the incident.
However, the boy's father maintains the student did nothing
wrong... that he was flying at 1,000 feet AGL, as the regs
require... and what's more, controllers in Manchester gave the boy
permission to fly around the campus.
The student's father says once the FAA hears the tapes from ATC,
his son will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
