    Turner claimed that he had picked the same spot as many other tourists who like to watch planes landing and taking off, but forgot to grab on to the fence.

    "I have always wanted to stand in the jet stream of a passenger jet after seeing videos on Facebook of other people doing it at Skiathos Airport," The Daily Mail cites the tourist as saying.
