A swarm of bees flew into the engine of a Mango Airlines plane, forcing a delay in flights at the main airport in South Africa’s coastal city of Durban.
Bee experts were called in and they safely removed the estimated 20,000 bees from the engine, the low-budget airline said.
The incident was extremely unusual, and the bees were probably resting before planning to fly on, one expert said.
It was unlikely they intended to make a “smelly” engine their home, he added.
The bees populated the engine in less than 25 minutes, and delayed three passenger flights at King Shaka International Airport. Mango Airlines spokesman Sergio dos Santos said.
“I have certainly never seen anything like this in my eight years in the aviation industry”, he told South Africa’s News24 website.
