Man in disguise Toronto, Nov 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Looks can be deceptive and in one case it was very so. An Asian passenger whose identity was not revealed by the Canadian authorities boarded an Air Canada airline from Hong Kong to Canada disguised as an old Caucasian man.

The disguise was near perfect and it took the vigilance of the flight attendance to realize the plot. He failed to cover his hands and the youthful hands gave him away. Other than that, the concealment was silicon face and neck mask that completely concealed him and gave him the look of an older white man.

Once he was in mid-air, the suspect allegedly entered the changing room of the plane and removed the concealment to reveal his real identity. His action was secretly reported to the Canada Border Services Agency who arrived at the airport to whisk the suspect away.

Though he initially denied the allegations claiming that he was having only one traveling bag, authorities confronted him with the evidence of another bag containing the bag and gloves. He was convinced by the authorities to wear the disguise again where a picture of him was taken.

Investigations into the incident continue and the suspect is currently in the custody of the Canadian authorities.
