Two fined for chasing plane down runway


A British father and son chased their missed flight down a runway followed by armed police.

Antonino Loi, 65, and Tony Loi, 40, had been drinking in the bar at Cagliari Airport, Sardinia, when they missed their easyJet flight to London, according to an airport police officer.

The pair then managed to escape through an emergency exit before bolting down the runway in pursuit of the moving plane.

They have now been fined Sh230, 000 each (£1,770) after the incident.

Tony, from London, said he thought police chasing after them would made an exception and radio the plane to inform crew what had happened.

But he said it was a “different case altogether”.
