Maggot infestation grounds US plane. NineMSN.Au. With video.
Maggots falling from an overhead luggage bin has stopped a US plane from taking off.
Passengers were horrified to see the larvae dropping onto an unsuspecting passenger as others began to panic and cause a commotion
911 fumigation call! And indeed that is what eventually happened when the U.S. Airways flight from Atlanta to New York started dropping those creepy crawlies from a suitcase with rotten meat from the overhead bin.
Next time you are on a plane, and the pleasant overhead announcement is made to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight,” don’t forget to take a peak overhead, just to make sure no critters jump down for a visit en route.
