Pilot arrested after landing in Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa —Agents say they arrested a pilot who was transporting high-grade marijuana from California to the east coast after his plane stopped in rural Iowa for maintenance. A complaint says Angelo Efthimiatos piloted a plane that landed Tuesday at the airport in Washington, Iowa to refuel and fix a mechanical problem. (www.kcci.com) More...

This i would think happens a lot more then people think. Ground units look over semi trucks more then the FAA looks at aircrafts

and that disappoints me. I know aviation is much bigger than it seems, especially us at smaller airports where everyone knows everyone else. (For that matter I worked in the airline industry and it's amazing how small world it is too)
But, I've always worn rose colored glasses and thought of us flying types as the good guys and unfortunately it's not 100% true.

Don't feel too down. Some marijuana is grown organically, thereby not poisoning the earth, and is bought by people suffering from cancer treatments, thereby giving them physical peace and an appetite to eat nourishing food. Was this pilot? *Shrug* I'm just sayin...

It was "high-grade". Don't know if the pun was intended.
