New Delhi, Sep 4: The plot of 'Snakes on a Plane' movie starring Samuel L Jackson and Julianna Margulies occured in Air India passenger jet when a snake was found coiled up under a seat on Thursday, Aug 28. The crew was unable to catch it as it slithered around the plane. During a routine check, the snake was disturbed, on Air India A319 aircraft, which had landed at Delhi airport after a domestic flight from Srinagar. It evaded capture by slipping into an air vent and could not be found even when staff unscrewed panels inside the fuselage, opened all the doors and fumigated the plane.
"The confused state scared the snake and it went further inside," an airport official said.
An Air India spokesman said on Monday, Sep 1, "The aircraft was parked at Delhi airport for maintenance purposes. There was a snake but not a cobra. We have no details of what kind of a snake it was, or where it is now. We have taken up this matter with Delhi airport authorities."
