I believe a thread on aircraft Stowaways is required: the ones who are caught before the plane takes off and those who survive the journey as distinct from Strange Deaths and Raining Corpses.

ENGINE STOWAWAY

SERBIA: Workers preparing a plane for a flight from Siberia to an Egyptian resort city discovered a mystery man hiding in one of the engines.

The man was found in the engine of the jetliner that was to fly from Kemerovo to Hurghada, Egypt, the Interfax news agency reports.

The man was in an “inadequate condition” and could not explain how or why he had crawled into the engine, the report said. It said he was taken to hospital after being discovered, but his identity has not been established.

You could climb into the front of Boeing 777 engine. I presume thats what they meant. He wouldn't survive the engine being started, let alone the flight as he would be sucked into the fans.

Serial Plane Stowaway Marilyn Jean Hartman Arrested At Phoenix Airport

PHOENIX (AP) — A woman accused of trying to sneak aboard multiple flights without a ticket and sentenced to jail for returning to a Los Angeles airport in violation of her probation was arrested Tuesday after being recognized loitering at a Phoenix airport, police said.

Police were requesting a mental health evaluation for Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, who was taken into custody near baggage claim at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on suspicion of criminal trespass, said Sgt. Trent Crump, a Phoenix police spokesman.

Hartman was recognized by airport personnel about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday "loitering around a checkpoint and again was not in possession of an airline ticket," Crump said. It wasn't the first time she's been spotted at the Phoenix airport.


Hartman was removed from Sky Harbor on Aug. 20 and given a trespass warning after she attempted to enter a security checkpoint without a ticket, Crump said. That incident came just four days after she was released from jail in California because of overcrowding, only serving a fraction of her 117-day sentence.

Police did not know how she got to Phoenix after being released from a detention center in Lynwood, California, and did not know if she had an attorney who could speak on her behalf.

A court commissioner had ordered Hartman to serve jail time for wandering around LAX on Aug. 7, a day after being ordered to stay away from that airport. ...
