A dozen climate activists showed up at the Ängelholm / Helsingborg Airport on Monday evening and delayed the departure of Scandinavian flight SK2184 to Stockholm when five of them went out onto the tarmac – and one glued himself to the plane.
The flight ultimately departed 1 hour and 43 minutes late, and arrived in Stockholm shortly after 10 p.m. local time.

It’s not yet clear how authorities removed the man who attached himself to the ATR-72 turboprop, but I’m impressed they moved as quickly as they did. From the photo it appears possible that only the man’s gloves were actually fused to the nose of the plane.
