It’s not snakes on a plane, but for some, it might be even worse. A swarm of 20,000 bees descended on a Mango Airlines plane in Durban’s King Shaka International Airport on Monday before takeoff, completely occupying the jet engine and causing lengthy delays.
Perhaps the bees thought the Mango Airlines plane was an actual mango. Or maybe they were attracted to its bright orange color. The reason for the bee siege is unclear, but once it was noticed, airline officials quickly called in professional beekeepers to handle the situation.
