Man climbs on wing of Alaska Airlines plane departing Las Vegas airport, takes off shoes and socks

Police have arrested a man who managed to climb the wing of a departing Alaska Airlines plane at Las Vegas’s McCarran International Airport on Saturday.

Passengers watched in shock — and filmed — inside Alaska Airlines flight 1367 from Las Vegas to Portland when they saw the man climbing onboard the wing, sitting down and eventually taking off his shoes and socks during his estimated 45-minute stint.

“WTH did I just witness?” passenger Erin Evans asked on Twitter, while posting video of the incident..

According to a statement from Alaska Airlines obtained by USA TODAY, the flight “was preparing for take-off when the pilot noticed an individual advancing towards the aircraft. The pilots notified the tower. Law enforcement was dispatched and [was] able to apprehend the individual.”
