P-Wag ???

What has Patty been up to???


World-renowned air show performer Patty Wagstaff has confirmed to AVweb that "an incident" involving her took place on a runway at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh late Thursday night and that police and security officials are now reviewing the chain of events. "All I can say is that I was in a place that I shouldn't have been and an incident took place," she told AVweb. She said that under the advice of legal counsel, she can't comment further and that the circumstances of the incident are "under review."

I knew she was under the "influence" of something when she came up with that totally jacked up blonde hairdo a few years ago!

I'm curious as to how the FAA will handle this. I know of one other female race pilot / acro performer that has had a dui recently. She does not have the "celebrity" status of Patty though. I hope the FAA shows some consistancy in punishment.

Re: P-Wag ???

Quote from Patty;


On Thursday, July 31, at Oshkosh about 11 p.m., I was driving from the Gathering of Eagles dinner at the EAA Museum to the North side of the airport, on airport property. My vehicle had the proper credentials, and I planned to take a route to the north side of the field down the taxiway along runway 18/36, through the warbirds area and then on the perimeter road. It was really dark, the runway was closed and I mistakenly ended up on the runway for about 1500' to the end of runway 36, before turning off onto the grass into the warbirds area.


As soon as I turned off the runway I was stopped by EAA Security, who promptly called the Winnebago County Sheriff and two police cars arrived. The police quickly took me into custody and I was released at 2:30 am and have since retained a lawyer. Even though I had a driver with me at the time I chose to drive because I had navigated this route before and it was very dark that night. Reports that I was driving impaired are simply not grounded in fact and are nothing more than rumors.


Obviously I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and I feel horrible about this and am very sorry for any trouble I've caused. I would like to warn all pilots to be mindful and present when operating any airport. In today's climate of heightened security, it is easy to see how an innocent mistake at any airport can lead to a frightening experience.

Re: P-Wag ???

Um how does someone like her mistake being on a runway for 1500 ft? I'm sure it wasnt her first time at that airport.
