Border-crashing Canadian pilot loses plane
A Canadian pilot begged an Ohio court to give him more jail time rather than take away his beloved Cessna 172 but the presiding judge turned the aircraft over to the federal government and set 26-year-old Ryan Brandt, of North Bay, Ontario, free. Brandt had earlier pleaded guilty to trying to smuggle a Canadian woman across the Canada-U.S. border in the aircraft and had spent more than six months in jail while the process wound its way through the courts.
