Pilots to Dykstra -- We Flew, You Pay!

1/29/2009 10:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lenny DykstraFormer MLB star Lenny Dykstra earned the nickname "Nails" for his tough and aggressive playing style. But four men have a new nickname for him: Deadbeat.

According to a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Dykstra has yet to fork over the cash he promised to pay four pilots in exchange for flying his private plane. Dykstra had until January 12 to pay up, the lawsuit says, but thus far he hasn't.

What's more, the four pilots claim Dykstra promised them a four-month gig, but didn't deliver on that either.

They are suing for damages, lost wages, attorneys' fees and court costs.
