Airship prisonbreak plan

The Toronto Star has an article about an attempt to break out a prisoner from a prison on the Canary Islands. The plan involved using a remote controlled airship to deliver escape tools to the prisoners.

The breakout had been planned for Tuesday, a day before the detainee, whose name was given as Giulio B., was due to appear in court on charges of drug trafficking.

Three helpers had set up a camouflaged observation tent on a promontory 600 metres away from the prison, and spent months monitoring jail workers' movements with high-powered, wide-angle binoculars. They had electronic motion sensors to warn of people approaching.
