A pilot in Alaska endangered hunters, guides and another pilot when he harassed them with his Super Cub, a jury decided last week. Edward Lamb, 38, a hunting guide, was found guilty of assault for the aerial attacks, the Anchorage Daily News reported. In one incident, Lamb buzzed a competing guide who was scouting in a meadow with two clients, forcing them to run for cover in the trees. Another time, Lamb circled above as another pilot was trying to take off from a lake after picking up the competitor. Lamb told the Daily News that the issue is complicated and he is innocent. The competitor was working in area traditionally used by Lamb, according to The Associated Press. Lamb could be sentenced to up to 10 years in jail and may have to forfeit his airplane.
