Baby pythons escape during flight in Australia

AFP/File – A Qantas airliner was grounded after four snakes went missing from the cargo hold on a passenger flight …



Wed Apr 15, 11:40 pm ET
MELBOURNE, Australia – Four baby pythons escaped from a container aboard a passenger plane in Australia, leading to a search that forced the cancellation of two flights, the airline said Thursday.
Twelve non-venemous Stimson pythons were being transported Tuesday on a flight from Alice Springs to Melbourne in the plane's cargo area in a bag inside a plastic foam box with air holes.
When the flight landed, it was discovered that four snakes had escaped from the package, a Qantas spokeswoman said in a statement.
A reptile expert searched for the 6-inch (15-centimeter) -long snakes but did not find them. It was not known if the snakes were still on the plane or if they had somehow escaped outside after the plane landed.
In the meantime, the plane missed two flights it had been scheduled to fly and the passengers were transferred to other flights.
When the snakes were not found, the airplane was fumigated and it returned to service on Wednesday.
Stimson's pythons, which can grow up to three feet (one meter) long, live in western and central Australia and are not an endangered species.

You know he(Sam Jackson) only says it once in the movie, right? Me and some friends rented Snakes on a Plane when it just got released on DVD. We were expecting to hear a lot of, "there snakes n the plain b1tch!" or "there are mutherfcuking snakes on a mutherfcuking plane.... mutherfcuker!."

If he said it more times the movie would have been a lot better. Yes, we were quite dissapointed.

Turns out it was more of a documentary. Now i bet its an instructional video to be used in case this happens again.
