November 28. The question is, what was he trying to escape from? The plane hadn’t even taken off yet.
A man preparing to fly on a Southwest Airlines flight got off the plane through an escape hatch and stood on the wing before taking off on Sunday.
He jumped from the wing to the tarmac below and even tried to hijack an emergency vehicle before he was apprehended and arrested.
The man’s motivation for bolting the plane before it even left the gate area, or his identity, is unknown at this time.
The incident happened at Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans. The airliner was still parked and had yet to push back for takeoff. Witnesses said he was unrestrained long enough to actually walk on the wing before jumping down to the tarmac, where he was arrested.
