Two Stowaways Apprehended Aboard Singapore Flight

Aviation Security officials at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) found two men attempting to hop a flight to Singapore by hiding themselves within the wheel well of an aircraft. The men, one 20 years old and the other 17, allegedly got the idea for the stunt based on a movie they had seen.

Airport spokesperson Dewandono Prasetyo claims that the aspiring stowaways had snuck in through the airport’s perimeter fence.

“They planned to fly by riding the plane’s tires,” Dewandono said.
