Knight flight: Passenger dressed in full armor is seen on departure at Atlanta airport … but how long did it take him to get through security?
- Will O & # 39; Connor, a doctor on a business trip, said he was stunned by the knight
- The man in armor was leaving at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport
- TSA spokesman said he believed that the man made himself fit after passing the security
- Spokesman said a DragonCon event had taken place in Atlanta that weekend
A man was seen in a full armor, including chain mail and helmet, at Atlanta airport, where he discovered theories about how he got through security.
Will O & Connor, a physician on a business trip on October 17, said his toothpaste had been seized by security when he saw the knight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The man, presumably in his 60s & 60s, sat with other passengers in the departure lounge & # 39; as if he was trying to go up & # 39; while O & # 39; Connor was stunned.
A spokesperson for the TSA said they believe the man would have caught his knight armor and had once put it on for security rather than being allowed to wear it.
O & # 39; Connor, from Atlanta, said: & # 39; I was tired of removing my toothpaste after I saw that.

& # 39; I was a bit angry – crazier, not really angry. They do everything to keep us safe.
& # 39; I don't know if he went through the scanner with it or if they let it go.

& # 39; But I thought it was pretty funny that they let him through with the big helmet and such.
& # 39; You wonder how he would fit (on the plane). I don't know who he was next to, but that must have been interesting. & # 39;
The older man, who according to O & # 39; Connor may have been involved in cosplay, sat there waiting for a flight while people stared in confusion.
O & # 39; Connor said: & # 39; I have no idea how he got through it. I hate to be late for my flight and have it for me.
& # 39; He was in my area in front of that gate, but I didn't see him boarding the plane.
& # 39; He was all alone – he had no one else dressed like that with him.
& # 39; I have no idea why he would wear it and not pack it. (Maybe) Was it cosplay or something?
& # 39; Maybe he didn't want to pay the excess baggage allowance. It looked tough.
& # 39; Other people looked at him, but he didn't seem to mind. He looked like he was trying to merge with the rest of the passengers.
A TSA spokesperson claimed that there had been a DragonCon convention in Atlanta that weekend, where he believes the knight was probably born (photo: the airport)
& # 39; He reminded me of the knight in Indiana Jones. He looked like one of them.
& # 39; I don't know what happened to him, but I assume he was allowed to take the plane to his destination. & # 39; Could have packed it in their hand luggage and changed it once beyond security.
