Snakes on a Plane is an entertaining movie in part because the notion that a ton of venomous snakes could take over a transoceanic flight in a complex assassination attempt is ridiculous — yet terrifying. Also, Samuel L. Jackson.
But oh man, I feel for the passengers on Sunday’s Aeromexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City because THERE WAS A SNAKE ON THE PLANE.
A massive snake dropped from the overhead compartment and scared the living daylights out of everyone. Nobody was hurt, and the flight landed safely in Mexico City where workers contained the snake.
The snake was believed to be a venomous green viper, and the airline is investigating how the snake got onto the plane.
