A group of men boarded a Waterloo to Alton service at Brookwood around 8.45pm. During the journey, the train guard asked the group to see their tickets. None of the men had tickets for travel, but one of the group bought tickets for them all. As the train approached Ash Vale station, one of the men then became aggressive towards the guard. The man took the victim’s glasses off of him and threw them onto the track.

The former American air force pilot forged his papers to get a job with an airline based in Libya. He was caught when another pilot became suspicious. As Kerry Swain reports from Winchester Crown Court, the case has certain parallels with the story in the Hollywood movie 'Catch Me If You Can'.
The interviewee in the report is Detective Constable Chris Thorne from Hampshire Police.
The Libyan airline which employed a former American Air Force pilot who had forged documents allowing him to fly as a commercial pilot have issued a statement after his conviction for the crime.
Michael Fay, 61, of Alton, Hampshire, was jailed for three years at Winchester Crown Court. He flew planes into and out of Gatwick Airport for Afriqiyah Airways, as well as operating flights in Africa and elsewhere in Europe.
– Afriqiyah Airways statement
Michael Fay was a highly experienced airline Captain and instructor, qualified on the Boeing B747 and Airbus A320 who had over 20,000 hours of flying experience. It appears that in the latter stages of his career Mr Fay made alterations to his Singapore licence so that he could continue his flying career.
In its statement Afriqiyah Airways said it also wanted to make the following clarifications regarding its dealings with the convicted pilot, including the following:
- 1 ... was the first organisation to react when it discovered Mr Fay’s documentation was suspect.
- 2 ... contacted the U.K. Authorities, collaborated fully with the U.K. police which facilitated his arrest at London Gatwick.
- 3. ... subsequently provided detailed documentation leading to conviction.
- 4. When Afriqiyah Airways alerted the U.K. authorities it became apparent that Mr Fay was already known to them and other organisations as a forger of documentation.
- 5. The selection & screening process that was applied by Afriqiyah Airways has been reviewed by an expert, & has been found to be in line with the Airline standard screening for contract crew at that time. Additional precautions are now in place to verify the validity of international licences.
