Did you know that of a plane crash caused by a smuggled crocodile. The crocodile freed itself and panicked the passengers who all ran towards the flight-deck, which caused the plane to be unbalanced and crash. The only survivors were one person and the crocodile.
“The plane came down despite no apparent mechanical problems during an internal flight in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It has now emerged that the crash was caused by the concealed reptile escaping and causing a stampede in the cabin, throwing the aircraft off-balance.
A lone survivor apparently relayed the bizarre tale to investigators.
The crocodile survived the crash, only to be dispatched with a blow from a machete.
Danny Philemotte, the Belgian pilot and 62-year-old owner of the plane’s operator, Filair, struggled in vain with the controls, with Chris Wilson, his 39-year-old First Officer from Shurdington, near Cheltenham, Glocs.”
