Remember the ‘Barefoot Bandit’, who robbed houses and stole airplanes? Well here’s another teenaged airplane thief. While Colton Harris-Moore had a habit of crashing/crash-landing them, self-taught pilot, 18-year-old Geoffrey Biteman used the stolen 1971 Cessna 150 for months.
He was sentenced on state charges to 60 days in jail, 60 days home confinement, five years probation, $1,000 fines, and to make restitution to the owners.
ETA: I’ll have to re-read the article, but he may have returned the plane to its hangar after using it; which would explain why he could avail himself of it for months.
