Stowaway found in landing gear aircraft Maastricht Airport

On Thursday the Royal Marechaussee found a stowaway in the landing gear of an incoming flight from London at Maastricht Aachen Airport. The illegal passenger survived the flight in a wheel arch of a cargo aircraft.

The stowaway was in serious condition and was transferred to the hospital with hypothermization. It‘s not clear whether it’s a man or a woman.

Although it is rare, someone has been found in the Netherlands before in the landing gear of an aircraft. Usually stowaways did not survive this trip because of the cold.

People sometimes hide in the spaces of the landing gear of an aircraft to enter another country.
