Deportation order on palace parachutist
Tuesday 15 February 1994
AN AMERICAN parachutist who landed half-naked on the roof of Buckingham Palace then stripped off completely was yesterday jailed for seven days and recommended for deportation.
James Jarrett Fanman Miller, 30, of Nevada, was convicted at Bow Street magistrates' court, London, of flying a motorised parachute which did not display its nationality and registation mark, contrary to Article 5 (1) of the Air Navigation Order 1989.
He was also found guilty of flying the parachute within 500ft of a person, vehicle, vessel or structure and without a certificate of airworthiness.
He pleaded guilty to each charge, and was fined pounds 200 on each, with the alternative of seven days' jail.
The court ordered Miller to be detained in custody while the deportation recommendation is considered by the Home Office.
The offences took place on 5 February across the West End at Charing Cross, Northumberland Avenue and Trafalgar Square.
Several other charges relating to his aerial exploits were dropped.
