A LATAM Airlines flight was disrupted due to a giant swarm of bees that settled in the plane’s engine. It is reported by The Mirror.
It is specified that the flight was heading from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo. Insects were found during the preparation of the liner for departure on the runway. According to airport officials, the swarm was found on the left wing of the aircraft near the engine, while passengers were about to board. The bees could not be driven away, which caused the flight to be canceled for safety reasons.
Since the plane could not take off, the passengers were transferred to other flights in the direction of Sao Paulo. Airport security officials were unable to explain where the insects in the engine came from.
