10-Foot Python Rides On Plane Wing, Dies During Flight

WARNING: IT'S HARD TO WATCH THAT POOR BASTARD GETTING BEAT AGAINST THE PLANE DURING FLIGHT, I RECOMMEND NOT WATCHING THE VIDEO UNLESS YOU'RE ADAM OR EVE AND HAVE A SERIOUS THING AGAINST SNAKES.

This is a video of a 3-meter python trying to fly without paying from Australia to Papua New Guinea aboard a Qantas Airlines flight. Things didn't work out too hot for him. And not just because there was no beverage service either.

The snake--an Amethystine python--didn't survive the hard trip, killed either by the 248mph wind (400km/h) or the 10.4F (-12C) temperatures. When the plane arrived to its destination, the snake was still hanging from the wing, already dead.

Aw man, that sucks. My only hope is that he'd always dreamed of flying like a bird and died fulfilling that life-long fantasy. "Get real, GW." I WAS TRYING TO BE POSITIVE. He died f***ing cold and alone, you happy? "Let's go with the bird thing." Well it's too late now!

Hit the jump for the video, but really, you don't need to watch it.

Thanks to Ramie, Odd-one, Dani and skyhigh, who agree that may have been the saddest airshow wing-walking performance of all time.

  • Gracious, all these poor snakes coming to a sad ending because of us recently! At least this guy made the decision on his own-- I feel sorry for the ones down in Florida right now. I'm a huge snake finatic and own several. But I also work it a pet store, and it amazes me how many people buy snakes without thinking about how big some species get. Are you going to have room when your boa gets to 12 feet? Either way, then we have people dumping them in the wild, and now we've got little aggressive snakes breeding with huge dosile snakes to make super hybrid crazy killer snakes.
    At least this one can say he flew? Hmm. Gotta be positive so I don't feel upset!!

    Someone should have been fired for missing that during the preflight inspection !

  • I'm sick and tired of these mother****ing snakes on this mother****ing plane!!

  • See as if flying to Pupua New Guinni wasnt bad enough without looking out the window wondering if it had some friends in the plane. At least he was spared going to that place.

    No one can be as epic as Space Bat. The animal kingdom should stop trying before others are hurt.

    I guess the movie should have been titled snakes IN a plane
