Man Jumps From Air Asia Jet As Aircraft Rolls For Take Off.

Submitted
A 24 year-old man was arrested for jumping out of an AirAsia flight as it was taxiing for takeoff last Friday. The AirAsia plane was getting ready to takeoff and was starting its roll down the runway when the young man, only indentified as “Chong”, opened the emergency door which automatically deployed the emergency slide. He then slid down the chute. (airnation.net) More...

Poor guy saw what was on the galley trays for the in-flight meal and thought he had nothing to lose. I guess it will not add much to his flight miles program.... but seriously they have to find a safer way to audition for "jackass III - Flying with only one of the 3 stooges". Finally the most painful part of this thing will be how many times it will be repeated on Letterman/Leno and every 2:00 a.m. comedy club amature nights.

this is what the Ryanair passengers could have gotten away with once they saw their aircraft strike the american jet and nobody in the crew wanted to believe them.

Maybe the ticket agent promised him an "over the wing" seat and he took it literally?

So much is wrong with this story:

"as it was taxiing for takeoff last Friday"

"starting its roll down the runway"

OK which was it ? Taxi or takeoff roll ? I find it hard to belive that if the A/C was rolling and " was about to take off" and this goof popped the hatch and the slide deployed, he would have most likely experienced some serious runway rash.

Flight deck conversation: "V1" "Rotate" "Hey, did you leave the slide down ?"
