A person was arrested after climbing onto the wing of a aircraft that was able to take off from Las Vegas’ McCarran Worldwide Airport on Saturday, authorities stated.
The Alaska Airways flight from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon was making ready to go away the runway when the pilot observed a person approaching the Boeing 737 and alerted the management tower at round 2 p.m., the airline informed CNN.
Las Vegas police and airport officers instantly responded to arrest the person, who had climbed onto the left wing.
Video taken by a passenger exhibits the person strolling on the wing, at one level taking off his sneakers and socks.
Authorities imagine the person, who hasn’t been recognized, suffers from psychological sickness, the Las Vegas Assessment-Journal reported.
