Men jumps fence at LAS; he walk on AS 737 wing

Hi all,

I heard the men who jumps over the fence and then he walk on AS 737 wing. He was arrested for trespassing charges. He went at LAS airport property.

"Police say they believe impairment or mental illness is expected." Ya think?

He was probably dreaming he was a cow jumping over a moon (or one can expect a similar defense...)

To state the obvious, I hope he gets the help he apparently needs. I guess this can be funny and sad at the same time.

Looks like the flight stayed on the original aircraft, albeit departing 4.5 hours late.

Just another reason to fly an A320/757/something with the wing higher off the ground. Prevents wing trespassers.

Have to confess, I LOLd at this, then had to wipe that grin off my face, given how many people in my family tree could have been on that wing, then LOLd again. This whole cookie thing in the AS forum has been one of my greatest sources of amusement these past days. Or is it weeks? Or months? I've lost track.

I would say "only in Vegas" but even by Vegas standards, that is a whole new level.

Was he attempting to scale it or make love to it?

Yes, he will! He needs his help. He needs psychiatrist. Get him a treatment.

Or perhaps he was looking for the smoking section?

I think I heard that on the safety briefing once 😂
