In echoes of the great movie “Catch me if you can” starring Leonardo DiCaprio (seen below at the UK premier in 2003), a British 17-year-old has been caught trying to convince officials that he was setting up an airline.
This brings to mind another teenager, Martin Halstead, who tried to set up an airline in the UK flying on some regional routes a couple of years back. I wrote this blog about Martin after meeting him at the Routes event in 2005.
Unfortunately his venture – Alpha One Airlines – bit the dust.
Anybody got any other stories about teenage airline entrepreneurs?
