WE’VE heard of aircraft bird strikes, but how about a bird inside the cabin.
A Delta Air Lines flight captain decided to turn his plane around and return to Detroit after a bird was discovered inside the flight deck.
In a statement, the airline said the unwanted passenger entered during the boarding of the aircraft.
Once bound for Atlanta, the bird made itself known, leaving the captain with no choice but to return to the airport and be removed from the aircraft.
The suspect was set free upon capture, but offered no explanation on why it hid.
Passengers arrived in Atlanta only three hours late.
