A US man was so worried his son would miss his tennis lesson he landed his private jet on a golf course.

Robert Kadera parked his Piper PA-16 Clipper on the seventh fairway of the Marriott Lincolnshire Resort golf course in Chicago.

Kadera said: "He was late for his tennis tune-up. Traffic on Saturday is really bad.

"The golf course had plenty of room to land right across the street from the tennis courts so we thought it would work for us."

Kadera said he didn't think the landing endangered the public: "I don't think so. There was nobody playing golf with a foot of snow on the course."

Police are now investigating.
