Funny enough, on the picture where he's being taken to custody, he even bears a striking resemblance to the officer on the right hand side of the picture.

I don't have a problem with the selfies on the ground, but a chap dressed as a Lufthansa Captain wanting to sit in the RH seat would raise some warning flags!

Well, it did say "CHECK CAPTAIN" on his fake ID.

Last time I was in Paris, a Korean guy came over to me dressed as a dinosaur and asked me to take a photo of him while he held a sheet of paper with something in Korean on it. I didn't ask. The world is so crazy that you can get away with almost anything.

I admit I would be surprised if a "check captain" asked to sit in the seat. But my surprise would mostly be in the direction of "Why don't you do it in your own cockpit?". He could've come up with any number of plausible explanations, including, just off the top of my head, that he's doing it for some online competition of who gets photographed in most uniforms in most cockpits. OR he could even tell the truth that he's not a pilot but his girlfriend said that she wouldn't have sex with him until he's an airline captain. I'm sure Capt Hans Riesenschwanz would be most sympathetic.

I think it said he went through the Crew Channels at security and got airside.
Not known if he had a ticket, but that is insane if he didn't.

If he didn't, they can bust him for criminal trespass. But it would be VERY stupid of him, because that's where the "criminal" part comes from. Trespass and criminal trespass may be very different. I'm not well versed in Indian jurisprudence, though.

Anyway, the guy is FUN! I like people who utilize whatever talents they've been dealt, be it a large brain or looking confident in a pilot's uniform. He didn't do any harm to anyone, didn't steal anything. AND they can make a movie out of it. "The Indian Job". PLEASE let Rajiv Kapoor play the main character.

Let me clarify. It was not only the uniform he was wearing but on his face book profile you will see him with a forged military ID with other commissioned & non commissioned officers including handling weapons in what seems to be operational areas. His profile is still up & all these photographs are still up. Last I checked that can be considered a serious crime. Different issue that needs to be raised with how good were his forgeries & how accessed secure areas.

If you use a forged or fake document to obtain some form of financial or other benefit I believe that's considered fraud in most countries.

From the Forgery Act 1913 (UK)

6 Uttering

(1)Every person who utters any forged document, seal, or die shall be guilty of an offence of the like degree (whether felony or misdemeanour) and on conviction thereof shall be liable to the same punishment as if he himself had forged the document, seal, or die.

(2)A person utters a forged document, seal, or die, who, knowing the same to be forged, and with either of the intents necessary to constitute the offence of forging the said document, seal, or die, uses, offers, publishes, delivers, disposes of, tenders in payment or in exchange, exposes for sale or exchange, exchanges, tenders in evidence, or puts off the said forged document, seal, or die.

(3)It is immaterial where the document, seal, or die was forged.


No doubt there are more recent amendments, but the crunch comes if you are doing this to obtain an advantage.
