On the lighter side of aviation....

It does make you wonder about the kind of gas they use to kill rats on the plane... and how long you must wait before you can carry passengers again...

A few years ago there was a much publicized story of a cat that got loose on a Tower Air 747 for close to two weeks and took quite a few flights.

""The airline is happy to carry democrats, bureaucrats, aristocrats and plutocrats, but this particular rat had not paid the appropriate fare," Qantas told one newspaper."

In other words, it's hardly unusual for some kind of 'rat' to be airborne! You'll often see entire planeloads of them enroute to a lawyers' convention!  Big grin
