I was just wandering if any pilots or airport personel have experienced any strange runway, taxiway or ramp obstructions. Ive heard of or encountered my own fair few.
I was getting lined up on R/W 30 at Stuart, Witham Field, when out of the corner of my right eye i noticed what looked like a beaver run under my right wing and start tearing down the centre of the runway. It took the tower a minute to understand what I was trying to tell them before they dispatched a car to chase the poor thing back into a ditch. A GV had to go around and all because of a beaver!!
After landing at Marathon Airport on the Keys, I was just exiting the runway when I noticed a back pack lying on the runway. God knows how that fell out of a plane as you would expect someone to notice if a door was open.
Finally, a friend from school was in the pattern at Pahokee when he noticed a large dark object lying in the centre of the runway. As he got closer, he saw it was a huge alligator basking in the sun!!
Has anyone else experienced strange obstructions. Please share.
