Re: Man climbs on to wing of plane as it is about to take off

I'm confused, on FB there was a video of him climbing out of the #2 engine intake cowl, then other videos showing him climbing up the #1 onto the L/H wing. Either way, he was extremely lucky for single engine taxi if he was in the engine intake for the taxi-out!!! :-O
