A bat got onto a Delta Air Lines flight from Madison, Wisconsin to Atlanta, Georgia on Friday. The bat started flapping wildly around passengers heads, causing chaos on the plane, so the flight had to be aborted.
One of the passengers, Mike Schmidt, took the video of the bat flying around the cabin before it was finally trapped in the plane’s back lavatory.
Jarek Beem, a spokesperson for Delta Connections partner Atlantic Southeast Airlines, confirmed that flight 5121 did in fact return to Madison after a ‘flying animal’ was reported in the cabin, and was searched before flying out again. ‘We were not able to confirm if it was a bird or a bat,’ he said.
I am sure it was a bat. I can tell by the pixels.
