When all else fails to get an airplane off the ground…try sacrificing some goats…
Officials at Nepal Airlines, the country’s state run airline, have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757s, the airline announced today. Seriously.
The goats were sacrificed in front of the balky aircraft on Sunday at Nepal’s Kathmandu airport–following Hindu traditions. So to quickly recap, if you land at Nepal’s LUA airport you have to deal with a freaky take off and landing, and if you land in Kathmandu you may witness a goat sacrifice in action.
A senior airport official said:
The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights.
Hmmm. Somehow we doubt PETA members will be flying this airline anytime soon. We don’t know what is more disturbing, the actual sacrificing or the fact that the aircraft was declared “fixed” post sacrifice. You decide. story from jaunted
