The police chief should have sent an 80 euro fine and 3 points on the pilots licence.

It is reluctance that I have to say: isn't the Sidewinder an air-to-air missile?

Well spotted, Sithy, to continue the fine tradition of nitpicking established by my learned colleague, any fine levied by Her Majesty's boys in blue on the Pilot would of course be in Sterling, not Euro. Also, as the pilot was Dutch, British Police would not be able to add any points to the Pilot's Dutch license. Good to know if you are driving in a different European country, the local law enforcement can't put points on your license.

@ Sithy: Excellent! You have done well. And revealed this story as bullshit just like the infamous story of a US Navy ship asking a lighthouse to change course.

I'd also have accepted something referring to the Airborne ESM system eliminating a low powered radar emission from a police gun from the threat matrix.

You've won a prize (you're third from this blog I believe) E-mail me your address!

I'd prefer to live in a world where a story like that and the light house one is true. So to protect my wonderful world (from evil of course) then it is with no reluctance whatsoever that I must disavow (Wikapedia: To disclaim knowledge of, responsibility for, or association with) 'proffesor' Sith and his insesent nit picking before all love, joy and wonder in this life are 'calculated' out it. Sith by name, Sith by nature. The only true prize one could hope for him is a re-admittance to the human race but only if he can prove he can smile first! Come on sithy smile for us! Your prize awaits!!

It's a shot in the dark, but I guess you forgot to put your name, pint of?

xpuzpThere's definitely something suspiciously girly about Anonymous's statements. Just proves yet again, that no one is safe in a witness protection program from the Sith!
