Took Twin From Florida Keys To Tennessee
What do you imagine 50-year old
Steven Allen Cate was doing flying a twin engine aircraft to
Tennessee from the Florida Keys -- without a license?
We're not terribly sure at this point, but according to US
District Judge Ronnie Greer, Cates gets three months in prison, a
$2,500 fine, community service and -- oh, yeah -- he has to give up
his $8,500 interest in the aforementioned airplane.
Federal authorities said Cates admitted flying the aircraft from
Key West, FL, to Tennessee back in June. The flight was intercepted
by the Immigrations and Customs Service and diverted to Tri-Cities
Airport in Blountville, TN.
