Helicopter carrying wedding party lands in prison in Bangladesh

Sun Aug 13, 2017 2:00 pm

"A private helicopter carrying a wedding party landed by mistake inside a high security prison on Thursday, sparking massive security concerns amid reports that terrorists were planning an attack on the jail to free the militant inmates."

"According to the officials the guards at Kashimpur Central Jail detained the five passengers, all members of an expatriate Bangladeshi family, for a brief period but the pilot, reportedly a retired air force officer, flew away with the plane after sensing his mistake."

How many prisoners RSVP'd for this ride of a lifetime

And in a place like Bangladesh this can only be big trouble to all involved.

Wonder if we can ever get a follow up as to what happened to the pilot and why he made the mistake?

I think that was the "dress rehearsal". It happened in Greece some years ago (2009). The prisoner managed to escape and the pilot was under the threat of a gun. Beautiful helicopter by the way. The next day a newspaper published a picture of an airport screen that showed the departures and arrivals of the convict's airline.

Reminds me of the prison yard scene from the 1975 Charles Bronson flick, Breakout.

Well for the groom, he would've been in prison either way. :duck: :spit:

This seems like something from a slapstick comedy. I showed it to a friend of mine originally from Bangladesh. The poor man was howling he was laughing so hard! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
