Title: Napping Owl Just Minding Its Own Business Found Inside Plane Engine
Post by: KB4TEZ on April 23, 2019, 06:31:27 AM

A small barn owl was snoozing inside the engine of a Virgin Australia plane, minding its own business, when a team of airport workers at the Sydney Airport disturbed its nap during their pre-flight check on April 18, Perth Now reported.

Sheesh, can’t an owl get in a few winks inside a giant piece of machinery anymore?

For both flight safety and owl safety, the bird was removed from the engine and checked for any injuries before being released back into the wild, according to Hopefully, it’ll think twice before napping at the airport again.Virgin owner Richard Branson responded to the news with his own pun, saying, “Just when I thought I’d seen it owl ... Great job team.”
