The Legendary Outback Glue Snake Strikes Again

Snakes On A Plane!!

Snake clings to plane wing during 2 hour Australian flight

Stunned Qantas Airways passengers watched out their windows as a large python clung to a plane’s wing during a two-hour flight from Australia’s northeastern city of Cairns to Papua New Guinea.

The 3-meter (10-foot) python fought to stay on the wing, pulling itself forward only to be pushed back by the frigid wind.

Passenger Robert Weber videotaped the struggle and told Australia’s Fairfax Media that the wind whipping the snake against the side of the plane left a bloody smear.

The python managed to hang on until the plane landed in Port Moresby, but a Qantas spokesman said the creature was dead on arrival.

Ok, now somebody tell me how the damn snake got up on the wing in the first place. And how the ground crew managed to miss it during the pre-flight? What, do the Aussies park their airliners under trees or something, or out in the middle of mangrove swamps? Crikey!

  1. Probably an Islamic snake who lost his boarding pass.
