A Virgin Australia pilot was forced to leave the cockpit and wrestled with an angry passenger before throwing him off the plane.
The pilot had to physically push the aggressive man off the plane after he was also hired by a “wild” stewardess when he refused to cooperate.
The plane was due to depart from Townsville Airport in Queensland but appeared to be delayed after the man, who a passenger claimed had “had one too many”, refused to accept his fate.
In a video uploaded to TikTok on Wednesday, the man could be heard arguing with staff as shocked passengers recorded the altercation on their phones.

The man, who wore yellow crocodiles and a bucket hat, was told, “You’re gone, mate,” as he fought the pilot and continued to protest.
The stewardess and a bystander then helped the pilot push him to the doors and out of the plane.
“Don’t fucking touch me, you stupid bitch,” the man could be heard yelling from outside.
The stewardess then raised a warning finger to the unruly passenger as the pilot told the young man to “stop swearing”.
A man on the flight uploaded footage of the wild moment to TikTok on Wednesday with the caption: “One too many buddies.”
Viewers were quick to applaud the crew for how they handled the situation.
“Fucking crew did an amazing job, they shouldn’t have to deal with it…that flight attendant was absolutely amazing,” one wrote.

A flight attendant suggested putting the man on a no-fly list.
“Well done to the crew, even though we’re trained for it, it’s still awful to deal with,” she commented.
“He will love taking the bus to his future vacation destinations,” wrote another.
“The cabin crew didn’t deserve this behavior, thank god the pilot intervened,” wrote another viewer.
