A Cessna Skymaster 337F aircraft crashed into a communications antenna shed at Melbourne International Airport in Florida, on May 27.

Authorities said the pilot Christopher Hall, 57, was drunk when he steered his plane into the shed.

There were two people, including the pilot and his pre-teen son, aboard the plane; none of them was seriously injured.

The pilot was charged with child abuse without great harm and reckless operation of a vessel.

The police and the FAA are investigating.
