Police and border guards in Ba Ria Vung Tau Province Tuesday seized a powered paraglider from a Hungarian man who had been using it in the beach town of Vung Tau for several days.

The man, identified as Lethen Victor Bruno, 43, has been asked to write a report on his activities, the Lao Dong newspaper reported, without mentioning if the man was aware that he was engaging in an illegal activity.

According to the border guards, they found Bruno using the powered paraglider since October 20 at a height of around 250 meters above the town and the districts of Long Dien, Dat Do and Tan Thanh, but they could not contact him.

It was only on Tuesday they were able to find his landing site.

Initial information is that Bruno, a construction worker in Hungary, came to Vietnam on October 5 with a tourism visa.

The powered paraglider he used was made in Poland by Walbro.

Using a powered paraglider requires a flying permit from Vietnamese aviation authorities.
