In a dramatic incident at Canberra Airport, an Australian woman was apprehended after she dashed onto the tarmac in a desperate attempt to halt a departing flight.
Reports indicate that the woman breached airport security, sprinted across the tarmac, and positioned herself under the aircraft—a QantasLink flight bound for Adelaide—signaling frantically to the pilot to allow her to board.
The unusual scene was captured on video and has since become a viral sensation on social media. The footage showcases the woman walking beneath the plane, gesturing to the pilot to stop the aircraft.
The Australian Federal Police have confirmed that the woman was denied bail and is expected to face court proceedings on November 3.
Social media users have reacted with a mix of astonishment and criticism, with comments ranging from disbelief at how the woman managed to reach the tarmac to predictions that she may never be permitted to fly again due to her actions.
