Stowaway Gets Through MAHB Security

You think it's going to be a quiet, uneventful evening at the airport except that disoriented stowaways end up falling all over your runway.

The poor boys at Changi.

They ought to know better if it's a flight coming from Malaysia.

Osama R.M. Shublaq (and you'd think he'd lie low with a name like that) snuck into the nose wheel crevice of the SIA flight SQ199 at KLIA and stunned the Changi Airport ground crew waiting to serve the aircraft, when he fell out from the Boeing 777-200.

I suppose those kind of occurences don't happen on a daily basis.

Osama was apparently dizzy due to a lack of oxygen. Yeah well. Heights can do that to you.

Apparently, the dude crawled from one of the drains in darkness to get to the aircraft at about 9pm on Thursday.

I figure the airport must have been sparsely staffed; every other security personnel off to balik kampung.

Osama was charged in a Singapore court on Friday with entering Singapore without a valid pass or permit. If convicted, he could be jailed for up to six months, caned three strokes or more, or fined up to 6,000 Singapore dollars.

Ouch. It ain't gonna be pretty.
