From a Yahoo News article:

LOS ANGELES – A man was charged with trespassing after he stripped naked, scaled a airport fence, ran across the tarmac and climbed into a plane’s wheel well before firefighters talked him out, officials said.

Baggage handlers saw the man climb an 8-foot, barbed-wire fence that separates public and private areas of the airport and run to a departing plane as it backed from the gate. He climbed into a wheel well before the plane stopped.

He ignored police officers’ commands to come out, but complied when city firefighters arrived. The Boeing 747, bound for Melbourne, Austrialia, departed an hour late.

Airport authorities will look into improving the fence, said Paul Haney, a spokesman for the agency that operates the airport.


1) Barbed wire? Naked? Ouch.
2) Flying from L.A. to Australia, unpressurized, at 35,000 feet. Hmm.
3) Good thing they’ll improve the fence. That’ll surely put an end to these kinds of shenanigans.
