Stowaway Survives Flight Tucked in Landing Gear of 747

A Romanian man somehow survived a flight from Vienna to London stuck in the wheelwell of a 747 near its landing gear.  The man was apparently trying to get to London to find work (though that doesn’t really make any sense), and crawled in the wheelwell of a private 747 belonging to some muckity-muck from the United Arab Emirates.  (muckity-muck?)

Incredibly, he survived the flight, likely because weather caused the plane to fly at a somewhat lower-than-normal altitude.  Upon arrival in London, he was arrested and is now in jail.
