Canadian authorities are investigating an "unbelievable" incident in which a passenger boarded an Air Canada flight disguised as an elderly man, according to a confidential alert obtained by CNN. The incident occurred on October 29 on Air Canada flight AC018 to Vancouver originating in Hong Kong. An intelligence alert from the Canada Border Services Agency describes the incident as an "unbelievable case of concealment." "Information was received from Air Canada Corporate Security regarding a possible imposter on a flight originating from Hong Kong," the alert says. "The passenger in question was observed at the beginning of the flight to be an elderly Caucasian male who appeared to have young looking hands. During the flight the subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian looking male that appeared to be in his early 20s."

Amazingly bizarre ping.
international man of mystery..
Secret Asian Man
OMG .. totally creepy.
The comments are kinda funny.
“It’s Kato! and the original Green Hornet! “
“Great. Now before we board a plane, TSA is going to start pulling on our faces, skin and hair to see if are who we really are. “
“Secret Asian man! “
“The picture looks like before and after McDonalds. “
“Great. Now they’re gonna poke holes in our faces to make sure we aren’t wearing masks. “
“bet there’s a middle eastern man with a beard and a turban behind his asian man mask “
“We have a guy from China on the left and someone older than China on the right. “
The guy is an idiot.
Mr. McGoo wore large round glasses.
More comments from the linked page:
“the old guy was born in ‘55? i was born in ‘51 and didn’t realize i looked quite THAT bad. just looked in the mirror, however....lol ! “
“He looks like Helen Thomas Boyfriend. “
“Next thing you know TSA will begin “popsicle stick” scrapings of our face to make sure it’s skin. Jeez! “
“THE ELDERLY MAN LOOKS LIKE BERNIE MADOFF “
“This is called the SPFX Old Man Mask. So far this is the second incident with SPFX’s masks. The last incident involved armed robbery with a white guy wearing a realistic SPFX black man mask and got away with it multiple times. “
LOL, I needed that chuckle.
Okay - I’m the idiot. It’s Mr. MaGoo - and I think I was recalling MaGoo’s glasses from the intro to the cartoon when he looks through the last two “o”’s in his name.
Anyway - the point is - it looks like a Mr. MaGoo mask.
The comments are quite funny.
The stunt itself....not so much.
The stunt is scare. He may have been a test dummy sent by people who like to do bad things to planes, people who would be barred from getting on a plane if their faces were revealed...
And then as some commenters on that page noted - the reporters indicated exactly what gave him away - for future use by others (his young looking hands)
Arbuckle and Keaton...from which movie?
I needed a good laugh before bed.
Helen Thomas boyfriend! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
That’s actually pretty cool.
That would be “The Bellboy”
