Crocodile On A Plane!

I wonder if Samuel L Jackson is up for a sequel?

Crocodile on plane kills 19 passengers

A stowaway crocodile on a flight escaped from its carrier bag and sparked an onboard stampede that caused the flight to crash, killing 19 passengers and crew.

The croc had been hidden in a passenger's sports bag - allegedly with plans to sell it - but it tore loose and ran amok, sparking panic.

A stampede of terrified passengers caused the small aircraft to lose balance and tip over in mid-air during an internal flight in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The unbalanced load caused the aircraft, on a routine flight from the capital, Kinshasa, to the regional airport at Bandundu, to go into a spin and crash into a house.

A lone survivor from the Let 410 plane told the astonishing tale to investigators.

Ironically the crocodile also survived the crash but was later killed with a machete by rescuers sifting through the wreckage.

Re: Crocodile On A Plane!

as someone who's been within a few miles of Kinshasa, this does not surprise me. in Brazaville they used to raid the zoo for food. on the ride back to the hotel from the airport i'd always see cars with dead animals in the trunk sticking out

I doubt the croc killed anybody. Besides how big could it have been if it was in a bag?

Re: Crocodile On A Plane!

Methinks the lone "survivor" is telling tales to cover up for a misdeed.
