French pilot was handed 12-month suspended prison sentence after he admitted that taking ecstasy caused him trouble in landing a plane in Paris.
The man was caught out after police tapped phone conversations of members in a Paris drug ring, one of whom was speaking to the pilot. The pilot recounted his troubles landing a plane at Paris airport Orly in May this year, the day after he had taken a third of an ecstasy pill.
“I had the sweats, I wasn’t feeling well. I was just doing any old thing as we came in for landing”
Police confirmed the pilot was suffering from drug addiction.
