The pilot of a plane who flew UKIP leader Nigel Farage on the day of the 2010 General election has been found dead at his home in Sussex.
Justin Adams, 48, had previously threatened to kill the MEP, following the crash which left him and Mr Farage in hospital.
A trial heard Adams made the threats after insurers refused to pay out until an investigation into the crash had finished. He lost work as a result.
The judge gave Adams a two-year supervision order, saying he had "a depressive order of moderate severity" caused by the crash, and had been drinking.
Sussex Police confirmed he had been found dead at his home in Eastbourne last month. His death is not being treated as suspicious. An inquest has been opened and adjourned.
