A fed-up passenger has been arrested after deciding that the only possible solution to being stuck on a delayed flight was to break out of the emergency exit.
Fellow flyers said that the unnamed man, reportedly a 57-year-old Polish national, cracked it after the Ryanair flight they were travelling on was delayed for an hour before leaving Stansted airport on New Year's Day.
When the plane eventually landed in Malaga, Spain, it was held-up for a further 30 minutes, prompting the cranky passenger to grab his hand luggage and climb out of the plane himself.
"This man decided he wasn't going to wait any longer," Fernando Del Valle Villalobos, who was also on the flight, told Mail Online.
"He activated the emergency door and left, saying: 'I'm going via the wing'. It was surreal.
"He was sat on the wing for quite a while until the crew managed to get him back inside."
Ground staff eventually talked the man into climbing back into the plane, where he was held until he was arrested by local police.
