A pilot made an emergency landing during a flight in Australia, reportedly telling air traffic controllers “look, you’re not going to believe this. I’ve got snakes on a plane.” Australia’s ABC News reported that Braden Blennerhassett, 26, swiftly put the plane on the ground after making the unusual mayday call during a flight from Darwin to the remote town of Peppimenarti Tuesday.
“My blood pressure and heart rate was a bit elevated — it was an interesting experience,” Blennerhassett told Nine News. “As the plane was landing the snake was crawling down my leg, which was frightening.” On the ground, a firefighter discovered that the snake that crawled down Blennerhassett’s leg was not alone — a green tree frog was also on the aircraft, Nine News reported. No other wildlife was found and both animals had disappeared by the time a wildlife ranger came for them.
