Remove cat before flight
On a list of most terrifying things that could happen on a flight, spotting a cat on the wing is pretty far down the list – that’s not to say that it wouldn’t warrant a sharp gasp and some bulging eyes at least, and that’s exactly how Romain Jantot reacted when he glanced over during his plane’s maiden flight and saw his own pet cat desperately clinging onto the wing of the plane.
To be fair, the pilot actually keeps his cool better than most of us would if we saw our own pet dangling from the metal bar with its entire body flapping in the wind.
He proceeds to land the plane immediately while his cat hangs on for dear life, and it looks pretty relieved to get its paws on the ground again at the end of the traumatic ordeal.
Check out the intense (but kinda funny) footage below, which has had nearly 2 million views in less than 24 hours.
Romain uploaded the video onto YouTube himself early this week with the caption, “A standard flight until… I still don’t know if it got in after the pre-flight check or if I missed it. The cat is doing well, she is still our mascot.”
And please… no “hang in there” puns in the comment section, please.
