Elderly Woman Grounds Flight For Unbelievable Reason

By

Now I’ve heard it all.

A China Southern Airlines flight had to be temporarily grounded when an elderly woman hurled coins into the plane’s engines for “good luck.”

The South China Morning Post reported:

Passengers boarding the flight reportedly saw an elderly woman throwing coins at the engine for “blessings” from the middle of the boarding staircase and alerted the crew.

Ground staff said the woman, who appeared to be about 80 and had limited mobility, was accompanied by her husband, daughter and son-in-law.

After maintenance crew inspected the aircraft, they found nine coins in one engine.

The captain was quoted as saying the metal, if sucked up by the engine, could have caused serious damage, including failure.

The flight was later given a green light and took off at 5.52pm, more than five hours late.
