Video: Man in Underwear Attempts to Board Airplane on Taxiway in Atlanta

After an airplane landed at the international airport which serves the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, a man dressed only in his underwear allegedly attempted to board an airplane while it was on the taxiway shortly prior to 5:00 in the afternoon on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

In this video which was recorded by Garth Magness, the man is seen running across the taxiway towards the airplane — and some clothing seems to be carried in one arm.

Initial reports claimed that the man exited the aircraft after it landed. That scenario is supposedly no longer the case.

As to how the man — who is yet to be identified — accessed the restricted and secure area of the airport is still unknown. Law enforcement officers of the Atlanta police department eventually surrounded the man, whose body was face down on the ground prior to being handcuffed and taken into custody.

Summary

I normally no longer do stories such as these; but I found this one to be rather strange when I found out about it — and a lot of questions still remain unanswered about this incident. What exactly was this man doing out on the restricted area of the airport? How did he get there without initially being caught?

Fortunately, the actions of the man did not interfere with the operations of the airport; so if you are traveling in or out of Atlanta, your flight will not be affected by this incident.
