Two Men Run Wild In An Empty Terminal At Dallas Forth-Worth Airport

There has been a video floating around the internet of photographer Joe Ayala and friend Larry Chen stranded at Dallas Fort-Worth Airport after their connecting flight was canceled one night. When it appeared there was no one else in the terminal, the two decide to make the most of the situation and goof around in wheelchair races and enjoying themselves to some free beer. The incident was seen on security cameras, but no personnel seem to be in the terminal. Aviation security experts don’t believe it to be too much of a security risk because the men were ticketed passengers who had already been through TSA screenings, but not everyone agrees.

DFW airport board member Betty Culbreath says while it may have been a prank, it sent the wrong message. “It’s not funny. It’s not going to happen again as far as I’m concerned. It should not have happened because it gives the perception the airport is sitting out there unguarded and that’s why I was concerned, and am still concerned.”

    I encountered a similar situation once when I was at the airport in Philly for 5-6 hours one late evening about two years ago, though I only wish I had the resources at hand to do the same

    If Betty Culbreath is so concerned about the airport appearing to be unguarded, she best get her butt out there and start guarding.

    GOOD ON THEM!!! It’s nice to see someone have a little fun at an airport. God knows the last 10 years TSA has turned them to hell on earth. and i agree with smooth_operator……Betty needs to take the board out of her ass and have a little fun her self.

    Yes, because terrorists might decide that once they get past security the airport is totally unguarded and they can.. I dunno… have terrorist wheelchair races?  Get some free beer that they aren’t supposed to drink in the first place?  Play on the escalators?  No, the fear here is not so much of terrorism itself.  Thats just the excuse that the anxiety produced is being channeled into.  The thing that actually generates the fear in this case is people in a situation with few if any rules outside of those that society has taught them to enforce upon themselves when there is no one around to enforce the rules.  Some people revel in that potential freedom… others are terrified of it.

    Clearly a fake.  How did they get the aerial shot of them goofing off on the escalator.  Entertaining and full of whimsy (we all wish we could do that) but definitely staged!

    the reasons for the ariel shots and other seemingly impossible shots was because one of the men was a professional photographer, and the only thing i see illegal here is when they went into the kitchen and stole a glass of beer. Otherwise this was a hilarious video

    Oh for pete’s sakes….what kind of security camera captures all their activities from all angles exactly? In the bathroom even….from the ceiling….from the floor….running alongside wheel chairs….

      The article never said that the footage being shown was the security camera footage. I think it’s pretty obvious that they filmed it themselves….
