New Hampshire State Police say an airborne patrol unit clocked a man driving 127 miles per hour on Interstate 93 in the town of Northfield. The State Police Special Enforcement Unit was using an airplane to monitor traffic yesterday morning when the trooper in the aircraft saw a northbound vehicle traveling quickly. Police say the tactical flight officer twice clocked the vehicle traveling in excess of 100mph, the fastest at 127mph.

The driver, stopped by troopers on the ground, was identified as 19-year-old Ryan Quinn of Newport, RI. Quinn was charged with reckless driving and two counts of possession of a controlled drug. He's due to appear in Franklin District Court in January. (More speeding stories.)
