Cat Attack at 20,000 Feet!
« on: August 10, 2004, 03:24:55 pm »
In Brussels, a Belgian airliner made an emergency landing after an agitated passenger--a cat--got into the cockpit, and attack the co-pilot!  The cat was apparently a passenger's pet who escaped from its cage.  Once free, the cat wandered around the cabin, and slipped into the cockpit when meals were being served, becoming agitated at that point (well, airline food is pretty bad! ) and scratching the copilot's arm!  They returned to Brussels as a precaution (to avoid a cat-astrophe? ), and the 58 passengers left later...meow!   '<img'>

Weird. ':shock:'

That would've scared me and I'd probably send the plane into a nosedive. Luckily, everyone was OK, with the exception of a few claw marks to the co-pilot.

If a cat could get into the cockpit THAT easy, how are they suppose to stop someone from hijaking the plane?

I am serious, If they have THAT bad security that a damn cat can walk into the cockpit without being stoped it is seriously dangerous to fly these days.

Did they leave the door open or something?
Pilot one: "You think its safe here?"
Pilot two: "aah, don't worry, we have the door open... what the heck, who is screaming JIHAD JIHAD back their?"

You're kidding?  It was a damned cat!  I can see how a small cat could easily slip into the weiner pit door as they opened it to allow the food in; it's no amazing feat.  A cat is no where near on the same level as a terrorist.  A terrorist isn't about a foot tall and 3 feet long, and able to silently slink around un-noticed.  They're protecting themselves from 5 1/2 foot primates with guns, not a semi-harmless cat.

Also, this was a BELGIAN airline.  They don't have reason to be as paranoid about security as we do.

With that being said, I don't understand why they had to land the plane.  It shouldn't of been that big a deal to just take the cat back to it's cage, without delaying everyone's flight.

I'd be pretty ticked if my flight was delayed due to a little  cat scratch to a co-pilot

My point exactly.
