Jet fire man to be detained indefinitely


A man who set fire to a plane at Glasgow Airport has been ordered to be detained without limit of time at the State Hospital. Albanian Safet Bukoshi, 36, admitted causing over £100,000 of damage to a BMI aircraft in January 2005. The High Court in Glasgow heard from a psychiatrist that he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia.

The court heard how Mr Bukoshi used a plank of wood to climb over the perimeter fence at Glasgow Airport before setting fire to the plane. In order to carry out the arson attack, he walked passed a hut in which security staff were sitting twice. Fire crews managed to extinguish the blaze before it turned into a ‘catastrophe’. Judge Lady Dorrian ordered that he be detained after hearing that he was a danger to the public when at liberty.
