American Airlines flight delayed by giant mass of bees
An American Airlines flight departing from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport was delayed because a giant mass of them had stowed away on the plane.
Luckily for passengers, the bees opted for outdoor seating, gathering under the wing, according to KCBD's Karin McCay. The queen was the first to arrive, soon followed by about 1,000 of her devoted subjects.

A person dressed in what was described as a 'space suit' was able to rid the craft of the stowaways, and the flight took off about one hour after the scheduled departure time.
This was not an isolated incident. A few years ago, dozens of bees occupied the cargo area of a commercial flight arriving at Miami International Airport from Dominican Republic.
In 2014, an airborne plane had to turn around because a bee swarm was hovering near the windshield.
