David Mason told the court Tuesday that he lit several pages from his porn magazines on fire because he was offended by them.

Receives treatment
The dramatic episode occurred February 12 of last year, and the Boeing 737 plane was in route from Bergen to London, reported AFP.

The Brit, who is receiving psychiatric treatment, admitted in court that he put his fellow passengers’ life in danger by starting a fire.

Easily extinguished
According to Prosecutor Roger Booth, Mason first asked one of the stewardesses on board if he could burn some papers in the oven in the plane’s kitchen, a request that was turned down.

Shortly there after, two passengers reported that they smelt smoke in the cabin. Staff managed to locate the fire and extinguished it with water.

According to Booth, Mason became so offended by some of the pictures in one of the porn magazines he had with him on the plane that he had an immediate need to destroy them at that very moment.

A verdict will be given sometime during the next month.
