The man who gate-crashed Merkel’s plane

His actions have made headlines around the world, but have not ended well for him and left military chiefs red-faced.

On July 25th the 24-year-old, wearing nothing but his underpants, boarded a government jet used by Chancellor Merkel and, high on drugs, staged a one-man party.

He pressed buttons in the cockpit, sprayed foam from a fire extinguisher around the jet’s plush interior and jumped on the wing of the Airbus 319.

The full details of the embarrassing intrusion were made public by the Welt newspaper on Sunday after they were leaked an eight-page police report.

They detail how Volkan even released an inflatable emergency slide from the jet inside the supposedly secure military area of Cologne airport.

  2. Was he desperate or psychotic or right winged Christian extremist? How did he get there? Very weird!
