Ben Innes on why he took a photo with EgyptAir hijacker Seif Eldin Mustafa

The 26-year-old British health and safety auditor describes why he posed for picture while held hostage on flight MS181

A British man who posed smiling for a photo with a hijacker on board an EgyptAir flight has said he did it to take “a closer look” at the apparent explosives belt, adding: “I figured if his bomb was real I’d nothing to lose anyway.”

    A different take in the situation

    http://turtleboysports.com/guy-who-took-picture-with-the-wannabe-egyptian-terrorist-who-hijacked-his-plan-is-a-****-legend/

    So there was a hijacking on an Egyptian airliner the other day when some idiot trying to get back with his ex-wife strapped a fake bomb to his chest and diverted the Cairo-bound flight to Cyprus. That’s when a British jokester saw the once in a lifetime opportunity to pose for a picture with the guy who was holding him hostage and he took it:
    His name is Ben Innes, and he is a legend. Absolute legend. Sure, some people would try to tackle the would-be fake terrorist or escalate the situation. But that was before God invented Instagram. Awesome sunglasses too. In all honesty, it seemed pretty implausible from the start that this guy was a real terrorist. For starters he’s old, skinny, and seemingly acting alone. Pretty sure ISIS wouldn’t send the geriatric retiree to do such an important job. Also pretty sure no one in ISIS lives to be this guy’s age. Might as well snap a photograph so you can show your kids proof that you took on a terrorist and survived. Pretty bad *** street cred right there.
