From an unimaginable film premise to real life – a plane was grounded on the morning of January 8 after a fink was found on board.

Shocked passengers took footage of the five-foot-long unskilful viper as it dropped down to the seats below.
A university professor who was on the exit told how he helped capture it with a blanket – but showed he had retained his perceive of humour and joked he had kept it entertained by giving it an in-flight magazine to deliver assign to.
Professor Indalecio Medina, whose video went viral, joked: “The tantrum snake. A unique experience on Aeromexico flight 231 from Torreon to Mexico Conurbation.”
He later added on social media: “I had to catch it with a blanket and patently we gave it some magazines to read for a while.
“The snake arrived energetic and kicking, frightened but without having paid its airfare.
“And best of all, seniority when it came to landing and animal control experts waiting for the unexpected jet-setter.”
It is not known how the snake managed to get on board the plane.
