This story appeared in a Launceston paper I think. It was related to me by a mate. One of the funniest stories in aviation for a while. The best part in the papers coverage was when after knocking the top off in front of his pax he "pulls" into his driveway and they go and have arfternoon tea with the pilots wife. Continuing out to the airport and getting airborne once again old matey feels the need. It would seem that buy now the woman pax considers this to be standard operating procedure. MAN, THIS GUYS GOT STAMINA.
Im assuming that this bloke is probably an above average pilot, considering that he naturally loves polling things around.
Thankfully all involved are now doing well having pulled themselves through this awkward situation.

Ahh, Was he jerking on the gerkin, when he fell out of the Cessna that he destroyed about 6 months ago ? Captain Lovett, do you know if the pilot in question was operating "BELOW OR RIGHT ON THE MINIMA" ? Capt Seagull, what's you opinion ?
My source of information was solely the newspapers, or at least what passes for newspapers here.
Seriously, what was reported makes you wonder about both the pilot concerned and the complainant. Not the least in that she chose to continue the journey with him after the first alleged incident.
I have no idea whether the jury believed his story- that due to his age he has to handle his "male organ of generation" more than normal when he wants to urinate- or they didn't believe that the alleged actions took place in a public place. The later is a requirement for the offence to have taken place.
If the reported facts were correct, I was suprised the DPP proceeded. To me neither a private vehicle or an aircraft, are public places as I don't think a charter company is a common carrier in law. That is, the public cannot travel on their aircraft as of right. Some of you company owners should know that better than me and may care to comment.
Whatever, the whole thing was a bit shonky no matter what actually happened. Doesn't reflect well on anyone involved.
C'mon boys and girls - you've got to be impressed when a 63 year old alleged sleazeball (those of you that know the man in question will probably know of inuendo along a similar line in his past) can still manage to choke the chicken - not once, but twice in an afternoon.
If I was in the unfortunate position to fly for Spankair I would only feel comfortable handling the controls with gloves on.
"Geez H***ie, keep your **** on your own side" ------- FUNNY!!!!!
What happened in the end was quite unfortunate really. Whilst trying to contain the load ( keeping the interior in a respectable condition for the next poler no doubt ), he held his thumb over the end and, sadly, blew his balls off
you bring a tear to my eye with such fond memories! I was just telling a few boys about the DME challenge the other day, but they'd never heard of it. Almost enough to make me want to head back to the crack....almost
What a surprise to see the Crack Ferrals talking about that sort of behavior.... Up here at the moment one of our sectors is 10 mins and the challenge is to rub one off in that time..... With full IFR procedures on the Radio !!!!!
Ah Brisbane Centre ohhh Ahhh.... Alpha Bravo Charlie Yeahhhhh..... Ejaculated at 54 Track 069 Climbing 1000......
