WASHINGTON –  The mailman from Florida who landed his small gyrocopter on the West Lawn of the U.S. Captiol is due in federal court Thursday afternoon where formal charges are expected to be made against the 61-year-old postal worker.

Doug Hughes was quickly arrested Wednesday after he flew his ultralight gyrocopter through closely protected airspace and landed on the West Lawn of the Capitol.

Stunned tourists watched Wednesday afternoon as Hughes flew near the Captiol. Hughes claimed he was delivering letters to all 535 members of Congress in order to draw attention to campaign finance corruption. Instead, many say, Hughes refreshed concerns about safety in what’s supposed to be heavily protected airspace.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

I've got to go with stupid head. His actions will cause no one to change anything and he'll probably be stuck in prison where absolutely no one will hear him.

What did hope to accomplish? All he did was get himself into trouble. Nobody is going to listen to the political protests of an idiot.

That and he could have gotten himself (and who knows who else) killed by whatever potential reactions he might have garnered from the FAA, Police, etc.

Impossible! I'd never accept a job with the state...

But yea, this was a poorly thought out move, and this cat is lucky to be alive.

In a bizarre way he actually did the law enforcement a favor by exposing a security breach and by giving them a wake up and free practice and a good lesson learning 10-4!
