Passenger Throws Six Coins At Plane Engine For Good Luck

Passenger Throws Six Coins At Plane Engine For Good Luck

A passenger was arrested by police after chucking six coins at a plane 'for good luck'.

The 66-year-old woman was taken off the flight by police, admitting she was responsible for throwing the pieces of money as she was boarding the aircraft at Hohhot Baita International Airport in Inner Mongolia, today.

Following the arrest, all 100 passengers were transferred onto a new plane and were allowed to carry on their journey, after a two-hour delay.

According to a statement released by Tianjin Airlines, security were informed about the incident at around 7.50 am after crew members spotted the woman throwing the coins from the stairs leading up to the plane.

A spokesperson for the firm told the Mail Online that staff were then sent out to look for the money and discovered several Yi Jiao coins - six of them, to be precise - lying on the tarmac near the plane.

It's understood the woman was identified by the surname Yang and had admitted to police that she threw the coins as part of a good luck ritual to pray for a safe flight.

The statement from the airline confirmed that she has now been detained by the authorities and is awaiting further investigation.

Why? Well, he claimed that his clothes impair the aerodynamics. Yeah, maybe if the plane was wearing a gigantic parka or something.

He was trying to board a plane at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, destined for Crimea, and in video footage be could be seen standing brazenly in the queue beside (fully clothed) bewildered passengers.

The footage shows the man getting in line stark naked. Covering his private parts, he calmly waits for his turn as others pass through the final check.

In the end, it was not clear what the man had in mind, but he did the sign of the cross several times as the line moved forward.

An eyewitness told REN TV: "He went through the registration, threw off all his things, his bag, stripped naked and ran. He was detained when landing, managed to run. He broke through the ramp, he was detained further. I think this is spring aggravation. He was not drunk.

"He shouted that he was naked because the clothes worsened the aerodynamics of the body. He would fly more agile without clothes."
