N825AW (cn 1527) I couldn't BEElieve my eyes. Just look at all those BEEs. I guess this was the right place to BEE as well as the right time to BEE there. You get the picture....BEE!!!!!!

Back where I fly in Belgium, I remember on a hot sunny day that bugs where atracted to the wingtip of my glider. we assumed they were atracted by the color red in which the wingtip was painted. maybe here they're also atracted to the color red from the NAV light ^^

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 30, 2010:
I never thought an aircraft would draw a swarm of bees unless the old girl was parked in a graveyard, but to see it on a Airbus A319 that's obviously flight ready is incredible. These are new US Air livery colors as well, so this plane is parked temporarily. I wonder what made the bees home in on the leading edge of this aircraft? Nature is amazing, and until the A319 takes off, this is home of the bees.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 21, 2010:
How many bees does it take it change a nav light: cabout this many

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 21, 2010:
That must be seat 10 BEE

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 21, 2010:
Bee 72 Foxtrot go around traffic is on the winglet

Fox!?!? where

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun January 24, 2010:
This can be catastrophic! An airplane has already crashed because of bees!

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 9, 2009:
Man, whatever attracted bees to the winglights is very rare, the ground crew should better be careful or they get stung! Great pic

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed November 18, 2009:
Bees boarding an aircraft before take off! Thats gonna be a sweet flight.

The queen must have been hit, and her pheromones spread on the wing tip.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Tue September 29, 2009:
BEEzzare!

A visitor from Thailand posted Mon September 28, 2009:
This is an Airbus's experment. They can provide addition lift to the wing and save some fuel cost, BEE careful to put them equally on both wings to keep a balanced lift. If this experiment is success, they may put the BEEs as an option to the airlines.

A very unique shot! 5 stars

A visitor from Germany posted Sat August 8, 2009:
I only can say great!

A visitor from Norway posted Wed July 8, 2009:
Do you think they will get any good service out there?

A visitor from Australia posted Wed July 8, 2009:
I think 250 knots+ will fix this..

A visitor from Canada posted Wed June 3, 2009:
You could get rid of them with a STINGER missile.

get it?

never mind...

A visitor from - posted Sat April 11, 2009:
Oh, that's how those africanized bees are migrating...

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri April 3, 2009:
At least the bees are concerned about air safety. Look, they let the navigation lights to be seen still.

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon February 23, 2009:
LOL a rare sight! BEE strike!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed January 21, 2009:
Maximum take-off weight exceeded... Damn BEE's !

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 25, 2008:
All aboard, where are they headed?

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon October 20, 2008:
The wingtip must be made of HONEYcomb material....or maybe they thought the engines were made by HONEYwell. Very unique picture.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 27, 2008:
Only at LAX!

A visitor from - posted Thu August 28, 2008:
I think US Airways is replacing their human workers to bee workers to save money....:) By the way BEEautiful picture, nice to BEE There!

A visitor from - posted Fri August 22, 2008:
I wonder if this was a cause for making a Bee movie. thats to show the producers how you would get bee's onto a plane!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed August 20, 2008:
Wonder if they keep hanging on until Fl370.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 19, 2008:
Airborne Bee#1: "Shoot, this looks like LaGuardia at 5:00 o'clock"
Bee#2 "Tell me about it. I've been circling for an hour."

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 28, 2008:
To BEE or not to BEE... Two BEEs or not two BEEs..:) Great shot, 5*!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 27, 2008:

A visitor from Australia posted Sun June 15, 2008:
Lol nice work with all the BEE jokes. I guess this pic has too BEE seen to BEE BEElieved

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 25, 2008:
I am guessing the BEEcause of all the buzzing exceitment, there was a minor delay in getting this flight under way as the waitied for a Beekeeper

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 16, 2008:
Wow. especially when it looks like a new livery of u.s. air!

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 17, 2007:
Oh BEEhave. Great Photo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 25, 2007:
I hope they had the pitot tube covers on!!
Gives a new meaning to A vs Bee on A.net :)

Unique and a very interesting insight.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Wed July 4, 2007:

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 25, 2007:
Great photo. I'm sure a flight at FL350 would take care of that problem!

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu April 26, 2007:
Oh! They found their new home. I wounder if the metal taste honey...Awsome photo

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
Anybody ever hear of a bee strike to an engine :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
THAT is a one-of-a-kind photo!

Which do you think they like better - takeoffs or landings?

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
I guess they needed to BEE somewhere faster than flying there themselves. I suppose they were occupying Seat 1 BEE?

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
Very bizarre photo to say the least! Good thing I don't work around the aircraft as I am allergic to bees and need immediate medical attention if ever stung by just one!

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
This is very common in the Southwest. I have seen it happen on five or six occaisons in Arizona. We have called out beekeepers to smoke them off of the planes right before departure. On a side note, throwing Avgas on a bee is a quick way to kill them.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
I don't see what all the buzz is about. It's just a BEEautiful shot......

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
Unique picture. You were lucky to have had the opportunity to BEE there and see this.

As a joke: They would have had to cancel that flight for security reasons because those bees did not pass through the security checkpoint.

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue September 26, 2006:
What a curious moment, nice catch.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 26, 2006:
To BEE or not to BEE, that's the question...btw, that's gotta BEE one of the best shots~! =)

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
Wonder if they flew with them on there?

A visitor from Germany posted Tue September 26, 2006:
They just skipped boarding in order to be off the plane first after arrival. :)

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 26, 2006:
What a great idea - all those little wings might help increase lift, and at the same time provide free honey for the economy pax ;)

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 26, 2006:
I wonder what is atracting them? Are they just mad that the lights may have been on?

A visitor from Germany posted Mon September 25, 2006:
A319, tastes like honey! :-)

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 25, 2006:
Those who know how to fly prefer Airbus...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon September 25, 2006:
Interesting picture and well spotted. Hope they are not killer bees hitching a lift!

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 25, 2006:
Bees like gasoline, too!

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 25, 2006:
OK that is just WEIRD! Very unique capture! Hope you kept your distance!!!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon September 25, 2006:
