I'm not sure which I enjoyed more, the look on the cat's face or the one on the pilot's.

Luckily a good outcome.

Luckily a good outcome.

Could so easily have turned into a catastrophe. I bet the pilot was having kittens when he spotted it.

Just the very best film ever

But if the cat had gone the other way into the control wires........doesn't bear thinking about.

What are the loose looking bolts to the left and right of the cat?

maybe he had kittens on the previous flight?

I guess we're not feline it the same, Russ. Although, to be fur, she looked pretty catatonic when he first pointed it out to her. On reflection, and after paws for thought, you might be on to something. At least they all landed on their feet.

I bet that was the 9th time the cat had a safe flight.
Next time it will be raining cats and ... well, cat wee.

And he thought he'd take some hot pussy for a spin in his microlight....

Rather odd how the camera was pointing up at that wing and was not central.....

Would have been much more interesting if it had been a snake......
