REAL SNAKE ON THE PLANE!!!!!!

Skooter reporting 04/09/12

A pilot on a cargo route discovered a snake loose in his light plane and decided to turn back to his flight origin, north Australian base, an airline executive said.

Just like a scene in the 2006 movie "Snakes on a Plane," pilot Braden Blennerhassett spied the snake's head dart out from under the dashboard of his twin-engine Beechcraft Baron G58 right after takeoff from Darwin airport on Tuesday.

Pilot Blennerhassett kept cool and told air control that he’s going to have to return to Darwin because he got a snake on board the plane, Air Frontier director Geoff Hunt said Thursday. Hunt said that his employee was a “cool character.”

When the plane landed, a snake handler was called in but was unable to find the snake. They presumed then that the reptile quickly slithered away after the plane landed. The snake’s species is not known.
