We’ve all been there. Driving off with a cup of tea on the roof of the car. Cycling half way to work before realising you’ve forgotten your helmet. Taking off in your light aircraft without checking to see if your cat has climbed onto the wing… wait a second.
Pilot Romain Jantot posted this video on YouTube last night, showing his stowaway feline casually poking its head into the cockpit during an aviation school flight in Kourou, French Guiana.
In the video, which has already totted up over 75,000 views, the pilot takes over a minute to spot the hitchhiking cat holding on for its life hundreds of feet above the ground. Jantot later confirmed that the daredevil cat was unharmed, saying “it continues with its role as the flying club mascot”.
