20 year old Hong Kong male disguised as elderly caucasian man
TL;DR - takes mask off on plane and was discovered. flight from hong kong to vancouver. intended on coming to canada and applying for refugee status. “noted that he very much resembled an elderly Caucasian man, complete with mimicking the movements of an elderly person.”
Transport Canada is investigating whether Air Canada broke rules requiring airlines to verify passengers’ identities after a man wearing a disguise apparently used an Aeroplan card to board a flight.
The bizarre case happened a week ago on an Air Canada flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver.
Several hours into the trip, the male passenger went into the bathroom elderly and white – his face wrinkled, eyes scrunched nearly shut, only a few wisps of white hair clinging to his otherwise bald scalp – and emerged a fresh-faced, young Asian.
An intelligence alert from the Canadian Border Services Agency – headlined “unbelievable case of concealment” – says the unidentified man is believed to have swapped boarding passes with a 55-year-old American citizen in Hong Kong. The memo says the younger man apparently used an Aeroplan card as his identification to board the flight.
“Safety and security is a top priority for our government and we take this incident very seriously. Transport Canada is aware of the incident and is investigating whether the Identity Screening Regulations were respected,” John Babcock, press secretary to Transport Minister Chuck Strahl, said in an e-mail.
Government rules require airlines to verify the identity of travellers who appear to be 18 and older by looking at “a passenger’s entire face” and comparing “their physical appearance with their travel documents,” Mr. Babcock said.
Peter Fitzpatrick, a spokesman for Air Canada, would not address questions about how the man could have used an Aeroplan card to board the flight. The airline’s frequent-flier cards do not have photographs or birthdates.
“The investigation is ongoing and the facts are not established,” Mr. Fitzpatrick said by e-mail.
CBSA officials intercepted the man on Oct. 29 “attempting to enter Canada under false pretenses on board an Air Canada flight,” Christopher McCluskey, a spokesman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, said in an e-mail.
The man is currently being detained by the CBSA. He filed a refugee claim as soon as he arrived in Canada, according to the agency’s alert.
It is unclear how the man got through passport control or why he disguised himself to get on the plane.
“It should be noted that there are multiple identity checks before departure at the Hong Kong international airport, including Chinese government-run Hong Kong passport control, which Hong Kong originating passengers must undergo,” Mr. Fitzpatrick said.
The CBSA alert addresses the question of how the disguised man could have used a 55-year-old’s boarding pass to board the flight, saying: “As neither boarding passes nor Aeroplan cards reflect dates of birth it may not have been difficult for the very elderly looking imposter to present himself as a 55 year old man.”
The man’s disguise consisted of a silicone mask that covered his head, neck and part of his chest. He topped it off with a brown cardigan and apple cap and a pair of spectacles. However, the flight crew initially noticed a clue to his real age: His hands.
“The passenger in question was observed at the beginning of the flight to be an elderly Caucasian male who appeared to have young looking hands,” the CBSA memo says.
After the mid-air switcheroo, Air Canada security alerted CBSA officials, who pulled the man aside after the plane landed, the memo says. The man, who quickly filed a refugee claim, is said to have admitted the ruse to officials, and even donned the mask for them to demonstrate.
“The subject donned the ‘disguise’ for [border services officers] and they noted that he very much resembled an elderly Caucasian man, complete with mimicking the movements of an elderly person,” the memo says.
The alert says the man initially said he had one bag, but flight crew gave border officers two additional pieces of luggage. One contained a pair of gloves and another had a “disguise kit,” which consisted of his mask and costume.
In a statement, the CBSA declined to provide more information about the man or his motives, citing privacy rules.
The unusual case has attracted international media attention. Britain’s Daily Mail said “it reads like a plotline from the high-tech Mission: Impossible spy films.” The New York Post called it “an incredible breach of security”.
