Fat Idi Amin Lookalike caught telling porkies again

Anyone remember the fat Idi Amin lookalike who "borrowed" an SADF chopper to take his GF out for a spin before running out of fuel? Guess what turns up when you do a bit of Google Foo.


The original thread from back-in-the-day is long gone but the tales of daring do, lost log books, speed cameras, pulling a 9mm on a Serbian kid and climbing out of his GF window to avid arrest must still be out there somewhere.
 
He's gen. :oops:

Of course it was urban myth he was banned from coming back to RMAS for commissioning balls after attending every one for 3 years running.

Allegedly
 
Zim Hawk? Hope that's a full face visor in case of ejection.

Not sure.. He had the uncanny ability to lie his way into a variety of airframes through a number of air arms and civ firms.

The fat cünt turns up here: https://opencorporates.com/companies/gb/12535037

The address of the company is well known: it's home to hundreds (thousands?) of companies that are set up and want an 'anonymous' address for about 100 quid a year.

Amused to see the activities of his company "Cyberdyne Systems Consultancy". By strange chance, I'm doing a fair amount of work with the UK space agencies and companies (mainly those working in Cornwall).

I would be surprised if any of them are touching this fantasist and liar with a barge-pole though: even an Apollo rocket would struggle to lift his Idi Amin bulk off the launch pad.
 
He does have form getting his arrse handed to him by employment tribunals though, once telling the Reading tribunal he was a former "armed forces pilot". If, by that, they meant "lied about having a log book with more hours than Douglas Bader gained in a UAS whose records he claims "burned down" to get on an AAC Flying Grading Course", then it's an accurate description.


IIRC it was while under investigation for this that he went to SA, convinced the SADF he was a CFI and to let him borrow a Jet Ranger and crash landed it when it ran out of fuel taking his GF out on a jolly across the bush.
 
Bet he logged the time as PIC as well.
Don't know, but cheeky fukcer he is.

Reading into the case he filed, when West Atlantic checked the reference and found it was false they offered him the chance to resign rather than be sacked (which he did). He then took them to an ET claiming the 3 months notice he said they lowed him. WA counter-claimed for his training costs and the judge sided with WA so not only did he loose his 3 months he had to stump over £4k for his training. No word on the CAA looking into it though, and surely that's a breach of licence privileges.

Funnily enough, a quick search of PPRuNe turns up nothing on this.

Tying 'Nigel Francis McGann' into the search box will bring those memories flooding back. they are all there.
