Moment a ‘drunken’ Polish medical student performs a Nazi salute and yells the ‘n-word’ at horrified Wizz Air passengers before being escorted off the plane by police
- The man displayed the Nazi greeting in the cabin on a WizzAir flight last week
- He ranted nonsensically about race and used the N-word towards a passenger
- Two police officers led him off the plane to applause after it landed in Liverpool
This is the moment a ‘drunken’ medical student performed a Nazi salute and yelled the N-word at horrified passengers on board a plane.
Footage shows the 27-year-old man, believed to be a medical student in Poland, displaying the Nazi greeting in the cabin while ranting nonsensically about race.
Cabin crew said the man had been drinking and was rude and aggressive to the staff before unleashing his rant when the plane arrived in Liverpool.
The man was finally led off the plane by two police officers to applause from the other WizzAir passengers on board.

At the start of the clip, filmed from several rows back, the man is holding his arm out in an unmistakable Nazi salute.
He is the only traveller standing up and maintains his Nazi salute as he stares around the cabin at horrified passengers.
Not all of his words are audible in the clip, but at one point he is heard ranting nonsensically about race and telling another passenger: ‘Your job is to be the [N-word] of the world.’
Later on he is heard using the word ‘Untermensch’, a German word meaning ‘sub-human’ which is strongly attached to the racist worldview of the Nazis.
He also shouts out ‘Sieg Heil!’, a slogan adopted by the Nazis which often accompanied the Hitler salute.

Finally a police officer boards the plane and leads the man away, earning applause from some of the other customers.
The passenger who filmed the clip said he saw the man being taken to a police van, but said he was told to move along and did not see what happened next.
‘It made me feel disgusted what I have seen because as a Polish citizen seeing things like that got me really angry, absolutely despicable,’ the passenger said.
He described the man as a medical student in Warsaw, where the plane originated.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said: ‘We arrested a 27 year-old man from the Lancashire area on suspicion of racial/religiously aggravated harassment and entering an aircraft when drunk/being drunk in an aircraft.
‘He has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.’
