"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. During the flight the subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian looking male that appeared to be in his early 20s."

Saw that too. Seems it happens pretty often at least once a year someone using the masks for something. LOL.

Although the security breech is scary.

Does anyone besides me find it disturbing that he was able to get through security wearing one of these masks? I own an old man mask from Rusty and yes the quality is amazing, but holy crap, when you are able to fool these people with a $500 mask, the same people that are sposed to looking for bombs and stuff? WOW.... Shiver!!!!

Isn't there a guy in California robbing banks wearing one of these? I remember about a year ago the news kept describing him as "an elderly man" in the surveillance cameras...

And I would have gotten away with it to if it hadn't been for you darn kids and that meddling flight attendant!!!!.

just goes to prove always splurge for the hands and don't enter a bathroom as an old white man and then exit as a young asian.

At this point this story has gone viral! I just saw it on the nightly news... dang!!

I own one of these and have performed numerous pranks.... such as going to McDonalds during lunch hour with a baggy full of pennies to pay for my happy meal that "unexpectedly" breaks all over the counter. O_o

I even have a fake ID that gets me into clubs.

I wonder though... Will this "person" soon be on the FBI's 10 most wanted list? Will "he" be banned? It's an interesting and unique situation.

Well, it looks like the police are getting closer to cracking the case. (read last sentence...)

I heard it was a gay flight attendant who noticed it all. He saw the old man go in the bathroom, and then later, a young teen came out. He thought the old man had just purchased a gay membership in the "mile high club"... but when the older sugar daddy never came out, he realized it was something else entirely.
