Look, no one wants to miss their flight, but sometimes you just have to deal with it. The Guardian reports a man was late to his flight from Madrid to the Canary Islands on Friday, but instead of giving up, he ducked out a fire escape, jumped from a gangway, and—bags in hand—chased a Ryanair plane down the tarmac. The whole thing was caught on video and posted to Facebook by airport workers. The man was stopped by workers before catching the plane, which was actually the wrong one, but still somehow managed to get onto his flight, according to CNN. He was arrested upon landing in the Canary Islands. (More air travel stories.)
