WAUKESHA Co. (WITI) — An ultra-lite plane landed on the grounds of Hamilton High School in Sussex.

Officials say a man was flying his son to the graduation ceremony, but it is not clear if the son was actually graduating or just going to watch.

The graduation ceremony was held inside of the high school.

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department is in contact with the FAA and the man has not been arrested.

It’s unclear at this time whether the dad will face any charges or punishment. The incident is currently under investigation.

    I don’t know why this is a top news story. I think it was cool that they flew in, no one was hurt, it wasn’t near anyone…and yet there were cops all over this. The teachers and administration seemed to enjoy it as they were getting pictures themselves. Why waste so many police officers for this when there is so much other stuff going on out there. Makes me wonder if they are looking for easy stuff to pick on than what really matters. Sad. Let them have their great last memory of high school and move on.

      Where does it say in the article that this pilot was an attenton seeker, or a clown? It’s probably best if we leave the judgement to the Police Officers that are on the scene to determine if there was any wrong doing that jeopardized anyone’s safety or not.

    I hope he doesn’t get away with this. Very irresponsible and careless parenting. If he would have received the proper permission it would have been great. But no! What else does this person do in his lack of parenting?

  • johathin awesome

    people saying hes a bad parent need to stop being boring lol its an ultra light not a commercial plane so chill out

    • Jimmy

      Boring? Hahaha. That is coming from a sociopath. Being responsible is clearly not in your skills. I bet you also blow stop signs, tailgate and have a selfish attitude. Clearly not thinking of the implications of your actions and harming others.

    Charged? I’m so sure. No one was hurt end of story. The idea of flying a plane into a populated area is obviously not the best but seriously when looking at circumstances GET OVER IT. It’s ultra lite, he obviously knew what he was doing and once again IT CAUSED NO HARM WHAT SO EVER. Find something better to do than gm waste you’re time hoping someone gets charged for something that didn’t even affect you. Move on lol

    It is amazing how judgemental some people are! His son graduated and he was making a big deal of him. Maybe if more people made big deals of their kids we would not have so many young people struggling with self worth!!!
