Ryanair passenger mad dash across tarmac to catch flight

Whoa... now here's a guy who REALLY didn't want to miss his flight.

(CNN)You run to the boarding gate, only to find it closed. But you can see your plane, just now rolling across the tarmac. If only you could run out there and flag it down!

That's exactly what one man did in Spain recently. The Ryanair passenger managed to bypass security at Madrid-Barajas Airport and leap from an open gangway onto the tarmac.

Still lugging two bags, he appears to try to stop a baggage carrier vehicle, but gives up and then sprints toward the waiting plane where he is finally stopped by ground crew.

But perhaps most remarkable of all, the man then boarded his plane, which was bound for Spain's Canary Islands.
The man was later arrested and detained. But still. Sheesh.

Yeah, it was too late for that. He missed the flight. He can't go into the Tarmac. He didn't have a security badge, but he was breach security. He's trying to catch his plane. He should be arrested for that.
