Teen Stows Away On A Hawaiian 767-300ER

News outlets report that a 15-year-old boy stowed away in the wheel well of the port side landing gear on HAL45 (SJC-OGG), yesterday.  The top photo shows an iPad screenshot of from the FlightAware app of yesterday's HAL45 flight path and information. A FlightRadar24.com playback did not list the 767-33AER's N-Number. As a reference, the above photo is of Hawaiian's N580HA at OGG, taken in 2004.

Apparently, the teenager jumped a fence at SJC, then snuck into the wheel well, and survived the 5:15 flight at FL380, bearing temperatures of at least -40ºF, and a lack of oxygen. He was found wandering on the OGG ramp. It has been previously documented that a small number of others have survived this type of stowaway, but the majority of those who chose the wheel well as their stowaway location ended up dead.

I saw this plane landing on Sunday. I was waiting for someones flight from Honolulu, and this one landed 2 flights prior. Didn't take a picture, because at the time it was just another Hawaiian 767.
