Exclamation Teen stows away in Hawaiian Airlines wheel well

"Trans Pacific flights usually fly at altitudes of about 38,000 feet, making it extremely difficult to breathe. Temperatures also drop to as low as 80 degrees below zero."

On occasion this strategy has worked , although the odds are certainly not good.
The airlines should offer a teen incentive program.

Escapes from east Berlin were as daring but more numerous.

A long time ago my neighbor across the street decided to escape his wife and 8 kids.

She was an Alaskan airline stew with 9 years rank.

He got out to Maui and decided to try wind gliding.

His wings fell off and he plunged to earth , surviving with a broken spine.

5 days and then that.

I thought about that a lot.

Lucky to be alive, stupid, but some huge balls to try.
No wonder they found him walking around disoriented.

I still associate that event with the Hendrix tune 'Castles Made Of Sand' .
