An airline passenger was spotted, and filmed, drying her underwear using an overhead air vent while on a flight to Moscow.
The unnamed woman, who was flying from Antalya, Turkey, was filmed holding her knickers overhead during the flight.
Fellow passengers said she had not seemed to be at all embarrassed while drying her underwear on the Ural Airlines flight, and spent at least 20 minutes holding them up above her head.
One eyewitness said passengers on the flight had been shocked by the whole thing but remained silent after spotting her ‘unusual behaviour’.
The passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, commented:
Everybody was looking with interest and confusion, but everybody remained silent.
A video of the woman drying her underwear filmed by a passenger has since been shared on social media in Russia, with some defending her actions.

In fact, one person suggested the pants may have belonged to the woman’s child.
The woman, posting under the name Alexandra, commented:
Those [pants] aren’t an adult’s. Looks like they belong to a kid.
This is not the worst thing in the modern world.
And somebody else noted how perhaps she’d had ‘an accident’, commenting: ‘Maybe the take off was sort of extreme, so now she has to dry those.’
And that’s not all in the past couple of weeks, if we’re talking about strange behaviour on planes. Last week, it was reported a fist fight broke out between passengers after one ‘wouldn’t stop farting loudly’.
A Transavia Airlines HV6902 service was forced to make an unscheduled stop during its journey from Dubai to Amsterdam after a ‘punch-up broke out’ over the whole saga.
The plane landed in Vienna after two men objected when a ‘fellow traveller began breaking wind loudly’ and refused to stop doing it.
The pilot then made the decision to divert the plane to the Austrian airport.
Police boarded the plane once it had landed in Vienna and four people were reportedly removed from the flight.
A police spokesman confirmed the ‘incident’ centred around one passenger suffering from wind who was ‘not attempting to restrain himself’, offending two Dutch men who were on the flight.

Police escorted two Dutchmen from the flight – though it’s not been confirmed which two, as well as two young women, identified as Nora L, 25, because of local privacy laws and her unnamed sister, both from Rotterdam.
The young women told local media their removal had been ‘unfair’.
Nora L said:
It was crazy that we were included, we had no idea who these boys were, we just had the bad luck to be in the same row and we didn’t do anything.
A spokesman for Transavia Airlines told local media the four people had received a ban from any further travels on the airline.
Don’t get any ideas when you next go on holiday.
