Would you jump on the chance to get a free plane ride? Most of us would probably do – especially when you consider the fact that airfare can be pretty expensive these days.

Well one man in Lagos, Nigeria recently made headlines after literally trying to catch a free flight by climbing up an aircraft’s wing as it was gearing up to takeoff. He also tried entering in the cabin.

The bizarre incident happened at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport and one of the passengers caught it on film. The short footage quickly went viral on social media after it was shared online.

According to reports, the aircraft was preparing to takeoff upon clearance from air traffic controllers when the unnamed man suddenly appeared out of nowhere and pulled the ridiculous stunt.

Naturally, the passengers were shocked by the act and chaos ensued as everyone got up from their seats to look outside the windows.


After being informed about the problem, the pilots turned the engine off and the security crew immediately apprehended the man, whose identity remains unknown at the moment.
