    Default Bees on a Plane

    Air India flight delayed after being attacked (attached?) by a swarm of honeybees. Emergency services were rolled out to 'disperse' them with water cannons. Just another day in India.

    I just hope they checked the pitots before clearing them to proceed.

    Retaliation for the senseless murder of several hive members by the aircraft failing to follow fundamental right-of-way rules.
    Les règles de l'aviation de base découragent de longues périodes de dur tirer vers le haut.

    Actually I'm pretty sure that's not true!

    One of the most basic aviation right-of-way rules is that in a conflict, the more maneuverable craft must give way to the less maneuverable one. IMHO a bee is more maneuverable than an A319, so the bee should have yielded the right-of-way.
    Be alert! America needs more lerts.
