Keavy Man Charged With Flying Upside Down Under Bridge To See What Construction Works Are Doing

The F.A.A. has charged pilot Letch Day of Keavy, Ky with flying an aircraft inverted under a bridge on HWY 770. Mr. Day was charged with unlawfully flying aerobatics under 1500 feet, and also flying within 500 feet of a man made structure. Day paid the two fines of 25 dollars by the F.A.A. but was also charged with littering as well by the Laurel County Sheriff Department for 7 beer cans which fell from the aircraft after it went inverted.

On the littering charge, Day claims it was simply an accident, and was unintentional as he didn't actually throw them out, but they fell out, and intends to fight the charge in court. Sheriff John Root claims Day was likely drunk at the time but will not be charged because no deputies were able to pursue Mr. Day due to his excessive speed. When asked by a reporter if Mr. Day was drunk or not, he simply stated " Root is just mad because he doesn't have cool plane like I do. Matter of fact, he doesn't own any aircraft that I know of."
