CARIGNAN, Que. -- Transport Canada has launched an investigation to determine why a pilot landed his ultralight aircraft in the parking lot of a strip club in this town south of Montreal.

Local police say they received a 911 call from a witness who though he saw a plane crash at Le Rendez-Vous 10-35 bar on Saturday.

The witness later discovered that the aircraft had landed in the parking lot, and the pilot had entered the bar. He later left the bar and took off.

Police found the pilot, a 43-year-old man whose identity has not been disclosed.

He was not charged.

Civil aviation rules state that pilots are not to land their aircraft in public places unless it's an emergency.

Pilots are also forbidden from taking the controls of an aircraft within eight hours of drinking alcohol.

If the bar-hopping pilot is found to have been drinking and flying, his license could be revoked.
