An unemployed man wore a pilot's uniform to hitch a free ride in the cockpit of a commercial flight, Italian police claim. The 32-year-old was stopped at Turin's Caselle airport on suspicion of using false IDs, a cap and uniform to convince crew he was a qualified pilot. He managed to fly for free inside the cockpit aboard a flight from Munich, Germany, to Turin in April, according to Carabinieri paramilitary police.
A police statement said the suspect was held on suspicion of putting the security of air transport at risk and "usurping a title".
