A 32-year-old Berliner is said to have made repeated radio contact with passenger and cargo planes and police helicopters in the past six months. According to the executive, he also issued instructions with which he wanted to distribute pilots to dangerous maneuvers. Now the police arrested the man.
In the media statement of the executive one can read that the instructions of the false "air traffic controller" became more and more professional. "Here, the man is said to have given flight instructions that seemed more and more professional over time and thus would have been suitable for causing dangerous flight maneuvers," the police said in a broadcast.
In the night from Thursday to Friday, the Berlin executive got a visit and they are said to have caught him "in the act" with two radios that were set to the appropriate frequencies of air traffic. The police arrested him on suspicion of dangerous interference with air traffic. According to the announcement, the accused is said to have refused to testify for the time being.
