In a photo tweeted by a Sky News reporter, the man can be seen posing with Mustafa, who's wearing what he claimed to be an explosive belt.

The 26-year-old from England said he had nothing to lose when he posed with the hijacker. He said he figured if the bomb was real, he was going to lose, anyway. Now, the man says he's got a great story and a great picture.
