The unidentified man was photographed walking through a busy airport with a white stick and sunglasses.
While some might think the joke is inappropriate, others praised his sense of humour.

But not everyone agrees the joke is funny.
One Redit user said: “In poor taste … no professional pilot who worked for a major airline – or reputable airline would do such a thing.”
But another saw the funny side, saying: “Best joke I've seen in a long time.”
According to Whitlow, the prank was undertaken by a pilot at Halloween, so it could also have been a normal member of the public with a very realistic pilot's uniform.
