Plane flew seven flights with dead stowaway in wheel well

- The Washington Times - Tuesday, June 11, 2013

An iFly jet made seven flights carrying a dead man in its wheel well before crews in Moscow discovered the body, reported today.

Maintenance workers noticed blood stains last Thursday on the plane's main landing gear struts. After inspecting the wheel well they found the remains of a man carrying a Georgia passport, reported.

"According to a preliminary conclusion, the Afro-American man died from freezing. The man was apparently flying without a ticket," the Investigative Committee said on its website.

Authorities say the stowaway boarded the plane four days before he was found dead.
