Experts stunned by boy's Hawaii flight in wheel well - SFGate
Seemingly physically impossible, and quite scary from a security standpoint.(04-21) 09:58 PDT SAN JOSE -- Aviation and security experts were at a loss Monday to explain how a 16-year-old boy from Santa Clara managed to scale a fence at Mineta San Jose International Airport before surviving a five-hour flight to Maui in the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines jet.
Surveillance video showed the boy hopping a fence at the San Jose airport while it was still dark Sunday morning and then walking toward a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767 on the tarmac, authorities said. Flight 45 took off at 7:55 a.m. - with no one realizing that the boy had snuck into the plane's wheel well.
