The Russian man stripped off before boarding his flight from Moscow as he reportedly claimed his clothes reduced his ability to fly.
A man stripped naked before boarding his flight to make himself 'more aerodynamic', it has been reported.
Footage of the man, 38, whose identity has not been revealed, shows him standing naked as he nonchalantly waits his turn to board the Ural Airlines flight at Russia's Domodedovo Airport in Moscow.
The nude intruder was then caught by airport staff as he ran onto the jet bridge and detained by police, the Moscow Times reports.
One passenger was quoted by REN TV saying: "He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed.”
