Tom Hanks Movie “The Terminal” Inspires Man To Live In Airport

By: Beau Daniels

A man who’s name is protected fell on hard times, became homeless, then decided to live in an airport after remembering how Tom Hanks did it in the movie The Terminal, “I suddenly lost everything when my business, which provided high-risk assignments and the training of personnel, collapsed. The business put an enormous strain on my relationship and we separated. I was suddenly homeless and, because all the bank accounts were in joint names, penniless. I was mulling over what to do. I don’t want to be a burden on anybody, so felt I couldn’t stay on friends’ floors for more than a night or two, especially since I can’t pay my way. Then I remembered the Tom Hanks film about the bloke living at an airport. I realized there would be washing facilities and even free wi-fi.”

Also interesting is his observations on the lack of security, “I didn’t come here to criticize Heathrow Airport’s security but with my background in counter-terror work I couldn’t help observe things that really worried me. Over a period of one week, there were only two patrols by armed response officers in departures at Terminal 2, each with two officers. They walk very close together, which would make it very easy for any determined terrorist to take them out quickly.” He noticed that the nighttime hours are when things appear to be most vulnerable, “It would be the easiest thing for a group of three or four suicide terrorists to cause mass casualties in departures between that time. There’s no one to stop them.”

I say don’t try to remove him from the airport, his observations are worthy the stay. Oddity Central
