Lack of common sense and planning may be what was holding this guy back. Not necessarily living in Africa.

How the fark do these people get out on the tarmac and climb up a planes landing gear without anyone seeing them?

At some point wanting a better life isn't a good enough excuse for illegal immigration. Overpopulation is one of the worst things that can happen to a country or an environment. Illegal immigration from the turd world into the first is one of the quickest ways to get their.

While searching for a pic of that scene where Arnold jumps off the planes landing gear in "Commando" I came across this thread from last year.

Body falls from plane onto car in London. No word on whether the bunny was put back in the box

Apparently this isn't uncommon.

60f to 70f below zero, and virtually NO O2 to speak of = fairly agonizing death via hypoxia and hypothermia.

Don't worry so much. The Republican war machine is busy depopulating areas on the other side of the world just for you precious.

If he was still alive (which I doubt) hitting the ground was probably a relief.

If it's anything like running out of O2 on Everest, you don't pass out and you hyperventilate until your diaphragm is exhausted.

If by agonizing, you meant euphoric, pleasantly buzzed, confident, comfortable, and all around awesome feeling, until he went to sleep, then yes.  I'm sure it was fairly agonizing.

He would have also have wanted some air tanks and a jacket too.

Odds are he was crushed by the landing gear before that happened.

I bet all of you geniuses derping on about illegal immigration are not descended from Native Americans. Most of my ancestors came here legally within the last 1-2 generations, when all you needed to do was fill out a form and not the tonnes of paperwork plus assessments required today. If you're desperate enough to sneak into an airplane landing gear to a country, you'd be willing to work really hard and keep your nose clean.

If you adjust for wind direction, turbulence etc, it's actually not that difficult to jump from a plane. The documentary 'Commando' shows how easily it could be done.

Yes but the point is the country was more empty back then, and now has a lot of people that generate metric ass loads of pollution and adding more people to that population is not a good thing no matter how clean their noses are. It is unsustainable, populations should be allowed to shrink, less competition for dwindling resources is a good thing.

He wouldn't have been alive nearly long enough for the cold to get him at that altitude. 35,000 feet = 30 to 60 seconds of consciousness if you explosively decompressed. He would've started loosing consciousness after the plane passed 12,500.

I have never had the pleasure of flying out of Luanda airport (Angolas international airport) but if it is like most African airfields then you have commercial, private and sometimes military all sharing the same facilities, security is lax unless VIPs or a threat is present, and even then security can be haphazard, several  airports I have been to had no perimeter fences at all, others had fences but would let anyone wander in. It was always an adventure flying over there, I once was on a flight that actually voted to reroute to another airfield after we boarded

Africa needs more workhouses and prisons as well as decreasing the surplus population.

/Actually that wouldn't hurt.  They need more of just about everything.
