Disguised Passenger Boards Aircraft!
Nabbed! Man boards flight in 'elderly' disguise
A young airline passenger who disguised himself as an elderly man was intercepted after emerging from a toilet mid-flight without his silicone mask, according to reports.
Officials were notified of a "possible imposter" on an Air Canada flight originating from Hong Kong on Oct. 29. After arriving in Vancouver, the man was escorted off the flight and he subsequently made a claim for refugee protection.
According to an intelligence alert issued by the Canada Border Services Agency, officers later recovered a "disguise kit" which included "a silicone-type head and neck mask of an elderly Caucasian male, a brown leather cap, glasses and a thin brown cardigan."
The statement described the case as an "unbelievable case of concealment."
