Flight gets delayed by huge swarm of bees8/5/2012
A flight from Pittsburgh to New York had one of the weirder flight delays last week when a swarm of bees attached itself to the wing of the plane. Since honeybees are a protected species, the crew couldn’t just grab a can of Raid; they had to transport the creatures to a safe location. Of course, Pittsburgh International Airport should be used to this problem by now – it’s the fourth swarm this year! When a bee colony becomes too big, the queen sends a swarm to find a new home, even on an airport tarmac, but someone should let the bees know that airplane wings make terrible houses. [Source]
