It’s not uncommon to have tourists to take off their clothes when arriving in Las Vegas (because of the intense heat, of course), but a passenger yesterday onboard a Southwest Airlines flight to Las Vegas decided, apparently, he couln’t wait, and removed his clothing mid-flight, forcing the pilot to turn around, authorities said.
Police were there to meet Southwest Flight 947 when it returned to the Oakland Airport, where it had departed 30 minutes earlier.
The passenger’s name wasn’t released and authorities did not say what prompted him to take off his clothes, but they did say he was involved in a fight with a female passenger who was reportedly slightly injured.
Flight 947 was originally bound for St. Louis, Missouri, but was making a stop in Las Vegas. It landed just before 11:30 a.m. and was scheduled to take off for St. Louis Thursday afternoon.
