In the footage as AFP officers try to restrain the 55-year-old, an officer can be heard yelling “he’s trying to bite” as officers were forced to use a baton to restrain him.

A passenger approached the officers asking if they “need a hand”, to which they ask him to hold the man’s legs.

The court heard one of the officers needed surgery for a ruptured ligament in his thumb.

Hunter pleaded guilty over the blowup and was sentenced to six months in jail. He must serve two months behind bars.

When Hunter is released from jail, he will still be banned from Adelaide airport.

Hunter said he is “deeply sorry” for his mid-air antics and promised the magistrate he’ll never front court again.
