His Honour Judge Flying Lawyer

From todays Times our very own Flying Lawyer has been elevated to the ranks of the judiciary.


HM The Queen has appointed Tudor Wyn Owen to be a Circuit Judge on the advice of the Lord Chancellor.

The Lord Chief Justice has assigned him to the South Eastern Circuit, based in Snaresbrook Crown Court London with effect from Monday 29 October 2007.

His Honour Judge Owen is 56. He was called to the Bar in 1974. He was appointed as a Recorder on the South Eastern Circuit in 1991.

Many deserved congratulations Tudor

Wait a minute!
Could be bad news if he is no longer permitted to plead. Don't know and lawyer nephew is out.

Nevertheless, Hearty congratulations.

If it may please the court.......

What a delicious scenario...

You, up before His Honour accused by CAA Plod of low flying, say your Hawker Hunter, over I dunno - the Isle of Black.

CAA put their case, towit you were seen proceeding in a westerley direction a tad lower than usual.

Your defence. Afternoon Tudor, Good flight wasn't it?

Case dismissed! Costs? Er about 48,000. Agreed

Oh if only.........

Congratulations, Flying Lawyer!!

Heartiest congratulations to Tudor Owen, the well-known PPRuNe 'Flying Lawyer':

(Taken a few years ago when we flew Chipmunks together at the University of London Air Squadron)

'Flying Lawyer' is to get some circuit time in - as the 'Flying Judge'!

Congratulations, Tudor. Your terrific contribution to the good of aviation and the well-being of aviators in trouble is well-known and much appreciated - all the best for your new responsibilities.

Sorry I can't make it to your celebration shindig - but have a great time.

Well done, Your Aviating Honour.

Life will be different for Tudor from now on, as he will have to take the judges' vows of silence. It can sometimes be a bit lonely on the Bench, apart from working with brother judges, because everything he says and does will be subject to scrutiny by the Press in particular. The CAA will probably be glad to be rid of a thorn in their side though, because he habitually made mincemeat of their prosecutions.

I shall resist the temptation to say anything about motoring offences, since he will only see a few of the very worst, other than on appeal from the lower court.

Good luck HHJ Tudor Wyn Owen, and I wish you well in dispensing justice to the rough folk who live in and around Snaresbrook.

Does a PPRuNe membership give you a discount?

I am only joking. I realize Tudor is Incorruptible.

All shades and classes contribute to Ppprune - could there be more eloquent proof? - I do trust this won't mean less of the erudite contributions!

Many congratulations, Your Honour. I'm sure you will make an excellent Circuit Judge.

I wish you well in dispensing justice to the rough folk who live in and around Snaresbrook.

And that's just the Barristers.
