Detroit -  It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a bird on a plane.


A Delta Air Lines flight captain decided to turn his plane around and return to Detroit after a bird was discovered inside the flight deck.

The airline says in a statement that shortly after takeoff Saturday, the pilots of Flight 1943 from Detroit to Atlanta saw a small bird in the flight deck. The unexpected passenger had entered the aircraft during boarding.

The captain decided to turn the plane around to “avoid a potential distraction” during the flight. The aircraft landed without incident and the bird was removed and set free.

Maybe it was trying to migrate south and didn't want to fly all the way.

Give the bird some of the airline food. Then it will cease to ever act up again.

The bird will post selfies of itself being unfairly evicted on its Facebook page. Then sue the airline for millions.
