Pilot Gets Shock Of A Lifetime When He Sees A Cat Clinging To His Plane’s Wing

The cat was just as surprised to find herself way up in the sky.

This cat definitely has nine lives.

We can’t imagine all of the preflight checks that a pilot has to do before taking off on a flight, even a casual one. But Romain Jantot forgot one of the most important: “Remove cat before flight.”

A YouTube video posted by the amateur pilot shows him out with a flying club in Kouroi, French Guiana, when all of a sudden he realizes he has an unexpected passenger on the wing of his light aircraft. (The cat can be seen crawling toward the cockpit at about the :40 second mark, but the real star of the clip is Jantot’s facial expression when he sees her there at 1:00.) Jantot quickly lands the plane and is out of his seat and reaching for his windblown copilot before the aircraft even comes to a complete stop.

“The cat is doing well,” he wrote in the video description. “She is still our mascot.”
