Feds say pilot tried to bring gun on plane in NY

Pilot charged with trying to board flight in NY with loaded gun, allegedly had on many flights By The Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) ' An airline pilot is accused of trying to board a flight at Buffalo for New York City with a loaded revolver in his bag, and authorities believe he'd been flying with it for two days.

The U.S. Attorney's Office charged 52-year-old Brett Dieter of Barbersville, Va., with possessing a concealed firearm. A screener spotted the .357 Magnum before Dieter boarded Friday at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

The Piedmont Airlines employee was to pilot a US Airways-contracted flight to LaGuardia International Airport.



Investigators believe Dieter had been flying with the gun since Wednesday, when he flew from Charlottesville, Va., to New York City without having his bag X-rayed. He'd made seven flights since.

Dieter appeared without a lawyer in court. He's due back May 23. He couldn't be reached by phone.
