From Daily Mail:
A South African Airways pilot stripped to his underwear in front of crew and passengers in protest over rigorous airport searches.
Captain W Van Ginkel, who was about to board the airline's Flight SA 025 jet to fly to Johannesburg, reportedly removed all his clothes except his pants at Harare International Airport, Zimbabwe.
He was immediately arrested for incident exposure, meaning 90 passengers were delayed for five hours while a new pilot was called in.
The incident happened after the metal detector beeped as the captain walked through it – so he was asked to remove his shoes and try again, but it still beeped, according to NewZimbabwe.com.
He was then asked to remove his belt, but the detector went off again.
As security officials frisked Ginkel, he became frustrated and stripped down to his pants – in front of staff, crew and passengers.
The pilot walked through the metal detector, but was arrested by pilot for indecent exposure.
A police spokesman said Ginkel was later fined for ‘criminal nuisance’ and released.
