Man parked plane outside pub – went inside for a beer

Australia – An Australian man has been charged by police after parking a plane outside a pub while he went inside for a beer.
The 37-year-old had just bought the wingless Beechcraft two-seater and was on his way home when he decided to stop for a drink.
He taxied the light aircraft down the main street in Newman, Western Australia, and then parked it outside the Newman Hotel, leaving the engine running.
Police said he passed a breathalyzer test, but was charged with endangering the life, health and safety of residents because the propeller was still spinning.  More
