Asian man boards plane disguised as old white man

The unnamed man boarded the Vancouver-bound flight on October 29. At some point during the flight, he went into the bathroom and took his mask off, emerging as the young, Asian man.
Authorities said they were tipped off by the man’s hands, which looked too young compared to the rest of him.

At first he reportedly denied the Mission Impossible-style disguise, before admitting the ruse while being questioned. He left two carry-on bags on the plane, one of which contained the mask, described as “a silicone-type head and neck mask of an elderly Caucasian male”. He has subsequently claimed refugee status in Canada.
The Canada Border Services Agency said: “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 subject admitted at this time that he had boarded the flight with the mask on and had removed it several hours later.”
The statement added that the man had swapped boarding passes with a 55-year-old US citizen before getting on the plane, later using a frequent flier card as ID to board the flight.
