Escaped bees menace passengers on Russian flight
An airport official smuggled a hive of bees on to a plane, panicking passengers when they escaped mid-flight in one of a series of lapses at the provincial Blagoveshchensk facility, reports said Thursday.
The bees made a break for freedom during a flight to Moscow from the far eastern city after they were illegally stashed in a box in a coat locker in business class, a spokesman for the Yakutia airline told AFP.
“It was frightening. The passengers were in shock,” Andrei Savostin said.
