    A US Airways mechanic was arrested in Pittsburgh on Tuesday after stowing away on a flight from Florida to North Carolina.

    The man, in his 40s, whose name was not released, snuck aboard a flight from Tampa to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. He hid himself in a mechanical area of the plane, reports The Charlotte Observer.​

    The Transportation Security Administration is reportedly investigating whether the employee improperly used his airport credentials to get on the flight in Charlotte where police say he was spotted leaving the cargo area, according to the Associated Press.​

    From Charlotte, he flew to Pittsburgh as a ticketed passenger. He was met there by police – as requested by US Airways – due to his behavior at the gate.​
