Footage filmed from outside the aircraft shows the woman casually hopping onto the wing before jumping 15 feet onto the runway below.

She then is seen running across the tarmac to the terminal.

The United Airlines flight 1892 from New Orleans had just landed at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.

Police detained the woman after she jumped onto the runway.

Another clip – filmed from a passenger on the flight – shows the hatch wide open just moments after the woman took the plunge.

Cathy Cole – also on the flight – wrote on Facebook: “We landed and waited for the gate to open up as we were 30 minutes early.

“We stopped short of the gate waiting and she got the exit door open and jumped off onto the tarmac.

“Several people said we have a runner and before we knew it the door was open! Jeez!”

Some passengers initially feared the woman may have left something dangerous on the plane but a search found nothing and she is to be released without charge, local TV station KHOU reported .

She was said to be undergoing psychological tests but was not injured.
