    Not sure how this guy thought he was going to get away with it, or how he got as far as the plane for that matter, but apparently he thought it was a good idea.

    He actually grabbed an Air France t-shirt, a leather jacket with epaulets and what's being described as an obviously fake Air France ID and made his way to a US Airways flight headed to PBI (out of PHL).

    He was confronted at the gate after asking if there were any business class seats available, then somehow got past the gate agent and unto the cockpit, where he then sat on the jumpseat. He was eventually removed and arrested on a whole bunch of charges.
