OT Calling Squirrel King

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

From the swiss newspaper "Tages-Anzeiger".

Since Tuesday, a Swissair MD-11 has been bound in Zurich-Kloten. The reason: on a flight between Bankog and Zurich the crew saw a squirrel running around in the cabin!

After the landing, the jet was checked-in for maintenance. They took the cabin covers off and heard the squirrel, but they couldn't see it...

By Wednesday the squirrel was still not found, and because there was no reserve plane, Swissair had to cancel a flight to San Francisco...

The hunt went on, but the squirrel still didn't turn up. Result (still no reserve plane around): Swissair cancelled a flight between Zurich and Johannesburg...

On Thursday evening, SRTechnic closed every open gap in the cabin and pumped poison CO2 in the plane. It looks like they succeeded...

Today (Friday) Swissair is planning a one hour testflight with the MD-11. Finally they hope to have the plane ready at 12:00 (Swiss time) for the next regular flight (to San Francisco).

Conclusion: squirrels should always check-in with the passengers!

But, why didn't they just leave a trail of peanuts out the door? Sure hope the little guy wasn't chewing on any wiring.
