Yesterday I flew on a general aviation aircraft and got to hear on the ATC a bunch of aircraft headed towards VLN (Venezuela) diverting due to a sudden closure of this airport's operations. The pilot then asked why and happened to be a Bee Attack to the tower staff who had to evacuate the facility and shut down all incoming and outgoing flights.
This is something I have never heard before, any thoughts?
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

That is the coolest thing I've ever heard. Let's face it, bees are great. They're stripey as anything and they give us HONEY! It doesn't get much better than that, until now that is - when they manage to shut down an airport! Is there no end to the talent of bees?? Were they trying to nest in the tower? What kind of bees were they? Give it up for BEES everyone!
