Watch: Impatient man on long flight walks on wing of plane after escaping through emergency exit

A man who had been on a long, delayed Ryanair flight from London to Malaga, Spain couldn't take the wait for another minute. Rather than stand in a slow line to get off the plane, he opened the emergency exit door and sauntered down the wing of the plane. In the video you can hear bystanders laughing in the background.

According to Time:

The incident on New Year’s Day took place 30 minutes after the flight from Stansted Airport landed.

The man, who has not been named but is said to be a non-Spanish citizen, was coaxed back onto the plane while police were called.

Fellow passenger Fernando del Valle Villalobos, who videoed the incident, said he heard the man say he got fed up waiting...

Later, he said the captain came out and asked the man why he had done it and del Valle heard him say clearly that he was sick of waiting inside. The passengers, except the man in question, were kept a further 15 minutes on the plane before being let off.
