This is the moment when an angry passenger was bundled from an airplane by three police officers after allegedly locking himself in the loos during landing.
Passengers said the man was "quiet" the entire flight from Faro, Portugal to Gatwick until the seat belt signs lighted up and asked to go to the bathroom.
Apparently, despite protests from staff, he squeezed into the back of the plane and into the cabin, where he locked himself up for ten minutes.
When the Easyjet staff took him out, the captain had to cancel the landing and then spent another 40 minutes in the air and on the runway, the audience said.

Spectators claim that he tried to flee to the Loos two more times after police officers were called while the plane was on the runway.
And a video shows the moment when he is confronted by three police officers.
You can hear the man talking to the cops, who ask him to "come and talk" because he was "disabled on the flight".
A member of the public who helps the police by holding the man from behind can say, "If you try to bite me, you will get a slap in the face."
Then he asks incredulously: "Are you kidding me?"
The police ask him to stand up just so the man can resist and say "p *** off" – at this point the police make the decision to arrest him.
A member of the public who supports the police by holding the man from behind can say, "If you try to bite me, you will get a slap in the face."
The man throws his weight down to make it difficult for the police to move him, and you can see him squirm as they try to handcuff him.
At various points, the man asks the police to say goodbye.
As soon as the police have brought him to the front end of the aisle, the passengers applaud – some sit, others stand -.
24-year-old passenger Tom Porter, a Chichester real estate agent, filmed parts of the 20-minute fight with the police – inside and outside the cabin on May 18.
Tom, who came home from a golf vacation with his father and two uncles, said: “He was this angry, wild animal and didn't want to tame.
"He was obviously very angry when the stewards prevented him from locking himself up in the bathroom after he knew the police were coming.
"And then he sat diagonally away from me for about 15 minutes, staring at the people, berating anyone who looked at him and telling them to die if they had eye contact.

"To be honest, the whole episode was shocking and not what you want to see.
"We were all happy that the police took him away and saw his back."
Tom said the man, who was sitting about five rows from the front of the plane, appeared to have been quiet throughout the flight and didn't start until around 10:40 p.m. on the last departure.
When he told the cabin crew that he needed the toilet, "they weren't happy," but he pushed to the rear of the plane and locked himself in the cabin for 10 minutes.
Every few minutes, four stewards – three women and one man – knocked on the door and asked him to sit down again for the landing.
When this failed, the crew opened the toilet door and the man – standing fully clothed in front of them – shouted: "Why don't you let me piss?" after Tom.
The man took his place, but the cabin crew had not secured the cabin in time, so the landing was canceled, he said, and the plane got back on.
Tom said, "At that point, everyone was scared because we could see the lights below and didn't know what was going on."

After another 15 minutes in the air, the plane finally landed in Gatwick, but rolled "for quite a while" – about a 10 minute drive and 15 minutes stationary.
Tom said the captain told the passengers to stay in their seats because the police would come to take the man away.
The man, "apparently unsettled by the announcement," tried twice within 15 minutes to lock himself back in the bathroom – but his way was blocked by a male steward.
Two policemen and a policewoman got on the plane and handcuffed the fighting man when he disobeyed her orders.
In two separate videos, the man can be seen in handcuffs in front of the passenger airline – and even tries to block the door with his legs.
He was then put in a police car and taken away.

Tom described the yob as 5ft10in with short brown hair and in his 30s and said he was "stocky and strong like an angry bull that would have done serious damage".
