Light plane driven down street in quest for a drink

A Pilbara resident has spoken of his surprise at seeing a plane parked outside his local pub after its owner apparently taxied it down the main street so he could get a drink.

Officers were called to the Newman Hotel, also called the Purple Pub, about 2:00pm on Friday.

Witnesses told police the light aircraft, with its propeller running, had taxied from one end of the mining town to the other.

The aircraft did not have wings and was later towed from the pub.

Newman resident Beau Woolcock said he and his five-year-old daughter watched on as the plane was towed away.
