Airline says teenager survived flight over Pacific in jet wheel well
NEW YORK (REUTERS) – A teenaged boy has survived a flight from California to Hawaii within the wheel properly of a jetliner, an airline stated on Sunday.
The sixteen-yr-previous, who was not recognized, was noticed by airline personnel after Hawaiian Airlines flight forty five landed in Maui on Sunday morning on a flight from San Jose, California, the airline stated. The staff then notified safety.
FBI officers confirmed that the boy had traveled from San Jose to Maui within the aircraft’s wheel properly, the airline stated. The flying time from San Jose to Hawaii is greater than 5 hours.
Hawaiian Airlines had no details about how the boy had managed to outlive at an altitude of tens of hundreds of ft that jets on that route over the Pacific sometimes fly at.
