Cat attacks pilot; forces plane to make emergency landing


In a bizarre incident, a stowaway cat caused a Qatar-bound Sudanese airline to make an emergency landing at Khartoum International Airport on Wednesday after the animal started to viciously attack the crew in the cockpit.

According to Al Sudani News, the cat was noticed by the cockpit crew about half an hour after takeoff. The feline, which perhaps felt trapped in the cabin, got aggressive and started attacking the pilot.

The crew then made several attempts to capture the ferocious cat, failing which, the pilot was forced to make a U-turn and take the plane back to Khartoum airport.

After investigations, it was found that the cat must have reportedly sneaked into the aircraft the previous night when it was stationed at a hangar in Khartoum airport. Passengers were relieved after witnessing the unusual incident.—Agencies
