Owl found sleeping inside Virgin plane engine
An owl was recently found napping inside the engine of a Virgin Australia plane in Melbourne.
Flight engineers were surprised to find a stowaway hiding inside the giant engine of a plane when they conducted pre-flight checks.
This owl didn't give a hoot where it napped! The cute little guy was found during our pre-flight checks. Our team of engineers rescued it & was assessed before being safely released back into the wild. Where's the strangest place you've woken up? #HootHootpic.twitter.com/1NEx9usRfu— Virgin Australia (@VirginAustralia) April 18, 2019
The team of engineers rescued the barn owl and assessed it before releasing it back into the wild.
The owner of Virgin, Richard Branson, noticed the tweet and responded:
Just when I thought I'd seen it owl... Great job team— Richard Branson (@richardbranson) April 18, 2019
And the Virgin team weren't done with the puns:
