Airplane Drunk Jailed For Mid-Flight Assault

An airplane drunk, who assaulted a stewardess on a Gulf Air flight from Bahrain, was jailed for four months yesterday.

Jobless Keith Edward Hansford, 63, of Knaresborough Road, Ripon, North Yorkshire was arrested after the Airbus A330 landed at Heathrow Airport.

He pleaded guilty at Isleworth Crown Court to being drunk on the aircraft during the June 12 seven-and-a-half hour flight and assaulting a member of the airline's staff.

The court heard Hansford, who has a heart condition lives on disability benefits.

He was also ordered to pay an £80 victim surcharge.
