Stowaway Falls Onto Office Block After 8000 Mile Plane Trip.

Bonkers!

Quote:
A suspected stowaway has been found on the roof of a west London office building after plunging to his death from a British Airways flight.

The man is believed to have climbed on to the Boeing 747 before it flew more than 8,000 miles (12,875km) from Johannesburg in South Africa to Heathrow.

The victim fell on to the offices of online marketplace Notonthehighstreet.com on a busy road in Richmond, south-west London, which is below the flight path, on Thursday morning. Flight data reveals the plane would have been at an altitude of around 1,400 feet when it passed over the area.

Analysis One in four plane stowaways can survive, but London case is astonishing
Incidents of people trying to secrete themselves on aircraft are relatively rare, and the appearance that this occurred at Johannesburg worries security experts

A second man, understood to be 24 years old, survived the journey and was in a serious condition in hospital. He was believed to have been found unconscious in the undercarriage of the plane at Heathrow before the other man’s body was discovered.

Re: Stowaway Falls Onto Office Block After 8000 Mile Plane Trip.

this story is crazy.....how many threads are there on this site aslone with images of people who have frozen to death whilst travelling in thw wheel well of a plane...or been crushed by the massive hydraulics used to lift the wheels.... the fact that one guy actually survived that trip is mind-blowing....
