Woman Goes for a Walk on Boeing 737's Wing to Get Some Air
Upon landing in Kiev, a woman felt too hot and decided to take a cooling walk on the airplane's wing, per confirmed reports.
The woman safely made it back into the plane, but her odd and surprising behavior worried authorities, who checked up on her.
The plane was a Boeing 737-85N and had just flown back from Antalya in Turkey.
Too hot to sit still
The overheated passenger traveling back to Ukraine from a holiday in Turkey decided to cool down by opening the plane's emergency exit and stepping off onto the wing.
Once outside, the woman in question strolled to the tip and back, before re-entering the plane to join her husband and their two children, per the New York Post's report.
According to the outlet, another passenger confirmed the stunt and mentioned that most of the other passengers had already disembarked the plane.
They explained that "She walked almost all the way from the tail to the emergency exit row, opened the door, and went out."
"By that time her two children were outside the plane and standing right next to me. They were surprised, saying, 'That’s our mum!'"
No one was injured, but to ensure she was in her right mind, aviation security, border service, police, medical center staff from Boryspil Airport double-checked. She was not under any influence such as alcohol or drugs.
All she explained as her reasoning for the odd behavior was that she felt "too hot," reported the Daily Mail.
However, regardless of this clear outcome, Ukraine International Airlines decided to ban the woman from flying their airline. As per the airline's statement "The passenger was blacklisted for gross violation of aviation safety rules and behavior on board."
