Passenger Jet Grounded By Mouse

Traveling by air these days is aggravating enough with the security checks, weather delays, occasional mechanical problems, but getting grounded by a mouse?  That’s what happened when a 757 jet was kept on the ground at Hong Kong International airport when a mouse was spotted in the cockpit just before takeoff Tuesday night.

The main concern was the mouse could chew thru wiring.  Traps were set all over the plane, but 36 hours after it was first spotted by pilots the mouse still hadn’t been found.

That same plane was grounded 11 hours the day before when a mouse jumped out of a box of drinks.  Was it the same mouse?  Could have been.

All of the passengers were rerouted to their destination on another plane by the next day.
