Naked Man Tries To Board Plane Claiming Nudity Makes Him More 'Aerodynamic'
Earlier this month, a UK travel agency was slammed for threatening to 'remove a passenger' from a flight because she was 'inappropriately' dressed - in a bralet and trousers. But people always have to one-up each other, don't they? Take this guy, who took things up a notch when he attempted to board his plane while absolutely naked.
Why? Well, the man 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 the video above he can be seen standing brazenly in the queue beside (fully clothed) bewildered passengers.
Footage from the scene 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."
According to the Moscow Times, the nude intruder was stopped by airport staff before he could make it on to the plane and he was later detained by police.
In a statement, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Central Federal District told the publication: "After the police had detained the offender, he was taken to the airport's medical room and then was hospitalised in a medical facility. The offender is a native of Yakutsk but lives in the Moscow region."
The airline company, Ural Airlines, told local media that the individual 'undressed and ran past the staff to the teletrap along the gallery'. A spokesperson added that he 'did not run as far as the plane'.
RIA Novosti reported that the flight ended up being delayed by 15 minutes due to the incident.
Presumably any in-flight entertainment the passengers later indulged in would have had to go some way to match this spectacle.
