Security Scare At Airport As Late Passenger Tries To Break Into A Plane 9 News

There's been a security scare at Melbourne airport this morning, with a passenger attempting to break his way onto a Jetstar plane.

Video from 9News shows the passenger storming to the door of a Jetstar flight and trying to rip the door open about 9.30am - reportedly angry after missing his flight.

After a few failed attempts to get the door open, the man appears to start bashing it with his feet.

The man is believed to have become irate after missing his flight hours earlier.

He pushed his way onto the tarmac and attacked the door, before eventually being retained by baggage handlers.

The flight he was trying to board is understood to not have been travelling in his intended destination.

It was delayed for at least an hour, as engineers examined the plane to confirm it was clear for take-off.
