HOW HE LOOKED WHEN HE BOARDED THE PLANE

A young airline passenger who disguised himself as an elderly man was intercepted after emerging from a toilet mid-flight without his silicone mask, according to reports.

Officials were notified of a “possible imposter” on an Air Canada flight originating from Hong Kong on Oct. 29. After arriving in Vancouver, the man was escorted off the flight and he subsequently made a claim for refugee protection.

According to an intelligence alert issued by the Canada Border Services Agency, officers later recovered a “disguise kit” — which included “a silicone-type head and neck mask of an elderly Caucasian male, a brown leather cap, glasses and a thin brown cardigan.”

HOW HE LOOKED WHEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY

“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,” the bulletin added. “During the flight the subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian male that appeared to be in his early 20s.”

The young man was detained and is due to appear before an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing. His name and nationality have not been released.
