In a bizarre incident, a passenger went ahead and opened the door of the plane while it was taxiing on the runaway in order to get some fresh air.

The air passenger thought the lever on the door would open a window, instead the door opened.

The entire flight was delayed for more than an hour as the security procedures were carried out, reports Independent newspaper.

There were about 130 passengers on board when the man risked their lives and yanked the door open moments before take-off, said the website.

The man was arrested by police and although it is clear what kind of charges would be slapped against him, he is quite likely to be blacklisted from air travel and he could also be jailed for his offense.
