UEL, I think erwin's link references that first event.

Another from our local newspaper.

The extraordinary incident is almost identical to another that occurred at Perth Airport in 2003.

The airline was National Jet and the destination was Cocos Island and the passenger a diver had heavy diving equipment in his baggage.

Alarmed at the excess baggage he had to pay, he retreated to put on the wetsuit, weight belt, goggles and returned to the check-in.

The check-in agent gave in and waived the excess baggage cost and allowed him to take off the equipment.
