They don't show the man scaling the barbed wire fence, but the video picks up when he walked up to the jet on the runway at Sky Harbor. The man has outstretched as if he were flying. After banging on the plane, he walks up to an airport police vehicle. He was arrested
Robert Edward Bump, 49, scaled a roughly 9-foot, barbed wire topped fence at about 5:30 p.m. at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport before running out onto the tarmac and banging on the engine of an arriving Southwest Airlines plane.
He was arrested a few minutes later after another pilot spotted him and alerted the tower, Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said. No injuries were reported, and Holmes said passengers were never in danger.
