Pilots Plot Revenge After Jeremy Clarkson Comments In Latest Column

Never one to shy away from a fight, The Grand Tour presenter and well known bear-poker Jeremy Clarkson has yet again angered a group of people with his comments.

After saying in his latest column how planes are causing too much noise pollution, furious pilots are planning to ‘buzz’ over Jeremy Clarkson’s Chipping Norton mansion. They’ve taken to the web where they’ve shared coordinates of Clarkson’s home and are putting together plans for squadrons to fly over the house at the legal limit of 500 feet.

In his column he explains how this one hobby “ruins life for everyone else,” and that he’s going to take up the hobby of “shooting light aircraft down with a surface-to-air missile”. He also calculated that with the 28,000 people with private pilot licences in the UK, alongside the 21,000 light aircraft owners, was causing 1.3million annual hours of noise pollution.

– Clarkson’s estate

These comments weren’t taken in a friendly, off-the-shoulder manner as they should have been, with some pilots even planning to “attempt a manoeuvre known as Practice Forced Landing” on his estate to increase the annoyance felt by Clarkson. One even suggested he would phone the police after Clarkson’s joke about shooting them down with missiles.

To be honest, I completely agree with him. Where I used to live in Stratford-upon-Avon, every Sunday, as I was relaxing with a good drink after a hearty lunch, the silence would be ruined by a pilot circling low over my house. I had plenty of ideas resulting in the destruction of this red plane, but after not fancying the jail time, I ended up grumbling my mates instead. If I had a column back then, I would have certainly raised a point.
