Maggots Drop Onto Unsuspecting Airline Passenger

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.
