The bodies fall out in pretty predictable places...

July 2001: "The undercarriage is always lowered at the same point, that is why they are falling at the same place," says John Stewart, of the airport noise pollution lobby group Hacan Clear Skies. "But it's an almost uncanny coincidence - these people fly right across the world in this way from different places, and they all end up in a car park in Richmond. If there are any more bodies to fall, that's where they will fall."

It was here, in October 1996, that 19-year-old Vijay Saini's own journey ended. He had stowed away in a jet from Delhi in the same way as Ayaz did, and fell out at almost exactly the same spot. His body lay undiscovered for three days. In August 1998 a couple drinking in the nearby Marlborough pub saw another body tumble from a plane, and land on what they thought was the building site of the new Sainsbury's. Despite a widespread police search, that body was never found, and police think it may have landed in a reservoir. There were reports of a fourth body being discovered while the Sainsbury's complex was being built.

It's more worrying how laxly guarded these planes are that any old person can hop up inside it... To say this is a security thread would seem to be an understatement.

"Sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn't cricket."
Katie Hopkins was more correct than people thought. Could be an enormous potential to launch a bio weapon on the UK.

I can think of much more effective ways than hiding people in the under carriage... It also tends to help when the host is alive.

Don't they know they can apply for a visa and get a seat in the plane like a normal person?

Aye true enough, though a suicide bomber wouldn't care, I imagine if the person who smuggled themselves abort detonated a bomb when the landing gear tucked in they could potentially bring a plane down? Or if we're talking a bio-weapon, there are multiple options which would make even a corpse a very infectious/dangerous situation.

Then again sometimes I wonder the same about security at football grounds and other large events, I'm thankful but actually surprised we've never had a bomb go off in the stands of a premier league game for instance. Scary really, security in some places is quite lax and even when its stringent, out of hundreds of thousands of people, someone will slip through eventually.
