A man tried to board a flight naked because he thought it would make him more 'aerodynamic'

The 38-year-old man, whose identity remains anonymous, stood naked in Russia's Domodedovo Airport in Moscow while he waited to board the Ural Airlines flight.

But according to the Moscow Times, the nude man was caught by airport staff as he ran onto the jet bridge and then detained by police.

One passenger was quoted by REN TV saying: ''He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed.''

The press service of the interior of Ministry said: ''After the police had detained the offender, he was taken to the airport's medical room and then was hospitalized in a medical facility.''
