Teen falls to death after stowing-away in the wheel of a commercial airliner


www.wsoctv.com

Massachusetts investigators are looking into the possibility that Tisdale stowed away in the wheel well of a plane and fell out as the aircraft approached Logan International Airport in Boston.

An airport spokesman confirmed to Eyewitness News that several flights from Charlotte flew over the suburban area where Tisdale's body was discovered. He said, based on the time line, detectives are focusing their investigation on two of the flights from that night.

No one at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport has said how Tisdale might have gained access to the wheel well of an airliner. RO

This is a local story in my area that I haven't seen any coverage about on the national media. Odd though that with some of the most intrusive TSA searches going on in airports nationwide, a teen can somehow gain access to the tarmac of an international airport, climb into the wheel-well of a commercial airliner, and then fly away undetected.

Why is it that we have security at airports. Is it for us only and not for the planes?

It wouldnt be that hard to get onto the tarmac at night.Most of these stowaways freeze,suffocate or are crushed and then fall out when the gear is lowered,I dont know why they just dont take a train,do they have deadlines to meet?

I think the security is mainly so people don't hijack the aircraft and use them as weapons.

It's impossible to hijack a jet from within the wheel well.

you could place a bomb though.
so many people were laid off from the airlines. some disgruntled ex-employee could place a bomb.
im kind of just messin around there.

honestly if the security is so poor at night a teenager can stow away at night, than what is the point of all the other regulations

Excellent point. The teenager was, of course, larger than an effective sized bomb.

I'm sorry, but I have to give this person a Darwin Award.

I understand there is most likely a family out there grieving because of this, but really? I try my hardest to feel sorry for people, but some just make it impossible.

MSM won't pick it up unless someone somewhere whistpers the word "terrorist".
MSM is weird about stuff like that.

It's not impossible to put a bomb on though and then later detonate with a cell phone or a detonating device at close proximity while the airplane is in flight..


They should probably get better security on the outside..

Haven't you seen die hard? There is a secret passage from the wheel of the plane to the cargo area. From there you can take the really tiny elevator to the flight attendant area of the plane.


Okay I don't know if that is real or not but every movie that deals with getting on a plane real sneaky like has that in the plot somewhere.

This is the crux. Yes it's a darwin award, but we're supposedly dealing with suicide bombers? Why bother with backscatter? Go to plane, get in, wait. The moment the wheels start to retract, well that's high enough ...

This story is deep on many levels, thanks to the OP for sharing.

They let anyone who wants to ride in the wheel well ride there as long as they've accepted the proper AIT screening first. Thought the body scanner prevented this teen from blowing up the plane, they could not prevent his falling to his doom.

Reminds me of this video i saw a while back, possibly on ATS, cant remember of these people in this little town in pennsylvania or delaware who saw a man fall from the sky into a wooded area and called the police. before the police came a black helicopter was searching for him. black ops stuff. maybe the "stow away" excuse is just bs.
