Said He Was Lost In Clouds
How do you explain why, as a flight student, you busted some of
the most sensitive airspace in the world?
"Honest, officer, I was lost in the clouds."
That appears to have been the line a student pilot from Vero
Beach, FL, used when he was asked to explain just why he had
overflown the Kennedy Space Center.
Jacksonville's WJXT Television reports 26-year old Bryant Ryals
was flying along in a FlightSafety International Piper PA-28-161
(file photo of type, above) when he apparently strayed into KSC
airspace. NASA aircraft followed Ryals home to St. Augustine. There
he was greeted by a bevy of deputies from the St. John's County
Ryals was detained, questioned, then released according to the
report. An FAA official told the TV station that the transgression
indeed appeared to have been accidental.
