Flight Canceled After Bird Invades Cockpit

A British Airways flight from Heathrow Airport (LHR) to New York was canceled after a blackbird flew into the cockpit of the aircraft and successfully hid from flight crew for hours. Staff used several methods to attempt drawing the bird out, including playing recordings of distressed birds in an attempt to frighten it away.

The carrier released a statement: “When it comes to flying, we’re the experts, so it’s not surprising this bird wanted to hitch a ride on one of our 12 daily flights to New York. We could not help him out this time, but after a short delay we made sure our non-feathered customers got to the Big Apple as soon as we could.”
