In a bizarre incident, two pigeons entered a GoAir Flight that was to fly from Ahmedabad to Jaipur, leading to delay by about 30 minutes. The incident took place on Friday. The birds was seen inside the cabin as the plane was preparing for take-off.
In a mobile video inside the GoAir flight G8702, the pigeons are seen flying from one corner to the other, with many passengers laughing and taking videos. A passenger even tried to catch the bird with his hands, but failed. The passengers are seen asking the cabin crew for assistance.
After a struggle, the pigeons were finally let out by opening one of the plane’s door.
