Just like spies.
Is this terrorism gone high-tech & professional?
At the beginning of the flight, the passenger was observed as "an elderly Caucasian male who appeared to have young-looking hands," the alert says. "During the flight the subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian male that appeared to be in his early 20s."
The alert, dated Nov. 1, included photos of the man both wearing the disguise and not wearing the disguise. The disguise appears to be a latex mask with little hair and wrinkled skin that has a bib to cover the neck. The eyes of the mask are squinted. The disguise also included a brown poorboy hat, a pair of wire-rimmed glasses and a brown cardigan.
According to the alert, the man wearing the disguise swapped boarding passes with the actual passenger, a U.S. citizen who was born in 1955. It is believed the man used an Aeroplan card as ID to board the flight, the alert says.
Border services officers escorted the man off the plane after in Vancouver and he "proceeded to make a claim for refugee protection," the alert says.
Or maybe it's a Chinese Communist spy.
