Man strips naked and tries to board plane as he is more 'aerodynamic' with no clothes on
A naked passenger attempted to board a flight while claiming that it made him much more 'aerodynamic' to be without clothes. The 38-year-old man was seen with no clothes on surrounded by police at the Domodedovo Airport located in Moscow.
According to Russian Ren TV, one passenger shared, "He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed." The unidentified man was then arrested later on before boarding the Ural Airlines flight, as reported by The Moscow Times.
He went through check-in fully clothed, but then stripped down and ran naked across the bridge to the plane. Witnesses at the scene revealed that the man who hails from Yakutsk in East Siberia did not seem like he was drunk. Another witness shared that the man explained his stunt and said that "clothes make body aerodynamics worse" and so "it’s easier to fly nude".
Later on, he was seen sitting in handcuffs on the floor while he was still naked and surrounded by cops. The Interior Ministry's press office shared, "After the police detained the offender, he was taken to the airport's medical room and then hospitalized in a medical facility."
In video footage captured, the man is seen casually standing in the boarding line along with other passengers who are confronted with his naked body. The man appears to be unfazed as he stands in the line.
Later in the footage, he is seen sitting down while being surrounded by police officers. The man is seen sitting cross-legged on the floor with five policemen hovering over him. He is then seen turning around and stretching out his legs and leaning back against the wall, all while handcuffed.
The man was detained by the police and is said to be examined for his mental condition. This incident comes around only two months after a man on another Russian flight made headlines when he was captured on camera lowering his trousers and then urinating in the middle aisle of an aircraft. However, no details were given over which flight the incident took place.
