I can barely stand to look at this photo or the video in the Tweet below, let alone imagine being on a plane where a giant snake – possibly a venomous green viper 5 feet long – drops down from the overhead bins into the seats below, but this actually happened on an Aeromexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City on Sunday.
La vibora voladora…ja ja ja. Una experiencia única en el Vuelo Torreón-México, vuelo 231 de Aeroméxico. Eso si…Prioridad en aterrizaje. pic.twitter.com/qwDk6Wtszw

According to UPI, the plane was given priority landing clearance in Mexico City and animal control officers came on board to remove the serpent.
In other news… the Connecticut State Police reported that on Monday they were called in to help redirect a moose that somehow got stuck in the Enterprise Rent-A-Car parking lot at Bradley International Airport.
“File this under ‘things they don’t tell you about in the academy'” says the Connecticut State Police Facebook post about the incident.
