Left cairns this morning @ 6:10am bound for Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. About 15mins into the flight a lady passenger had signalled for the Qantas Flight Crew that there was a Snake On the plane, literally.
To everyones disbelief there was a 3m long snake tucked away under the left wing of the Aircraft holding on for its dear life as we headed towards Papua New Guinea.
The Cabin Crew confirmed it was a snake, the Captain of the aircraft confirmed it was a snake.. and so it was, ‘snakes on plane’ ! Though it was very saddening to see the snake get battered around as the plane cut through the air, at the same time trying to hold on at -12 Degrees Celsius; when the plane was at its highest cruising altitude.
