Plane death stowaway ‘was airport worker’

A STOWAWAY who fell from a plane into a south London garden may have been an airport worker, a Kenyan official said yesterday.

The body almost hit a sunbather in Clapham after plunging from the landing gear of a Kenya Airways flight on Sunday.

Kenya Civil Aviation Authority boss Gilbert Kibe told the BBC: ‘Whoever it is most likely had access to the airside. It’s unlikely that an outsider would have been able to make his way through to where an aeroplane is parked.’ He said planes are normally checked thoroughly before take-off.
