Cosby was caught on film after landing in Massachusetts where he is holed up in a 21-acre private compound on Tuesday, the same day he appeared in a Pennsylvania court for a pre-trial hearing on a rape charge.
And despite the judge in that hearing acknowledging that Cosby, 79, is blind, he seemed to require little help - not even his cane - stepping down from the aircraft.
Cosby had arrived in the Montgomery County Courthouse earlier that day looking considerably more vulnerable, walking arm-in-arm with spokesman Andrew Wyatt.
He was there for a hearing ahead of his June 2017 trial, which sees him accused of drugging and raping Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004.
He also had his brown wooden cane stretched out in front of him, seemingly to detect objects in his path.
But his attitude in these pictures seems a world away: He can be seen laughing with his cane and coat hooked over his arm as he descends the steep metal steps.
