Man tries to force his way onto plane, injures 3 ground staff

The man pulling on the door of the plane

Nine News reports he became angry at missing a flight and pushed staff out of the way, before running onto the tarmac. To make matters worse, it wasn't even the right plane.

Police then showed up and escorted the bearded and tattooed man, who had greying hair and was wearing a dark sweater, back through the airport. He has been banned from all Qantas and Jetstar flights for the time being, and he could be excluded from both airlines for life, depending on the upcoming police investigation.

There's been a security scare at Melbourne airport this morning, with a passenger attempting to break his way onto a Jetstar plane.

"We had been sitting ready to get on the flight and folks went 'Oh my god, what's going on?'" she informed 9news.com.au.

A man was arrested at the airport on May 17, 2018 after storming the tarmac in an attempt to board the plane.

"This man was trying to get up the stairs, he was physically fighting with the staff, punching and scratching them", said Susannah.

"At some point he got away from them", she said.

"We praise our crew for safely handling this incident and restraining the passenger until police arrived", Jetstar said in a statement. "This behavior is unacceptable and we have placed an immediate ban on this passenger travelling on all Jetstar and Qantas flights".

The massive security breach happened today after the man missed his flight and then tried to charge onto a plane waiting to take off. The Sydney-bound plane was delayed for close to two hours while officials inspected the plane and obtained replacements for the injured crew members. The video ends as the man is about to be confronted by staff.

AFP officers have the man into custody, but Channel 9 says charges are yet to be laid.

The man then attempted to board a Jetstar 787 Dreamliner but was confronted by the pilot before being Tasered by police and detained.
