The pilot of the Nigel Farage crash plane has been charged with threatening to kill the politician.
Justin Adams, who was at the controls of the light aircraft which slammed into a field on General Election day in May, seriously injuring the UK Independence Party’s now leader, has been remanded in custody.
The 45-year-old airman has also been charged with threatening to kill the official who investigated the dramatic accident.
Adams was at the controls of the Polish-made Wilga 35A, with Mr Farage sitting alongside him, when it suddenly nose-dived to earth during a party-political stunt on the morning of May 6.
Amazingly Mr Farage managed to walk from the scene, as pictured in graphic images from the time, while Adams was trapped in the mangled wreckage.
