SUSSEX, WI (WTAQ) - It was not a happy Father's Day Weekend for a man who flew his son to his high school graduation in an ultralight aircraft.

WTMJ-TV said hundreds of people were stunned to see the aircraft land on the front lawn of Sussex Hamilton High School just before the school's commencement on Saturday.

Parent Alan Larson said he saw the ultralight circle, and then land close to where people were walking in.

The pilot said he was given a citation from the Waukesha County sheriff's department, but he wouldn't say anything else. The man and his son flew away after the ceremony.
