Flying With Rodents
An American Airlines plane ( N320) has been infested with mice according to a video shot by an employee at the Kansas City International Airport.
The whistle blower said, "We had to take the chairs off and that's when everybody saw mice running around on the floor and one ran down one of the mechanic's arm." The whistle blower said workers found nests in air vents and dead mice in emergency oxygen masks. When mice would get hungry, they ate insulation and chewed through wires.But according to the Federal Aviation Administration,
American Airlines did nothing wrong because airlines do not have to report rodent infestations unless the rodents affect the mechanics. The FAA said that all insulation and oxygen masks on N320 have been replaced. The cargo bins have been removed and replaced and the wiring has been inspected.
American Airlines said N320 was an anomaly and while an occasional mouse has boarded, infestations simply don't happen.(Via Drudge)
