Mouse stops SAS flight from leaving Stockholm

Rodent evades capture as 250 passengers are stranded

Shortly before a SAS flight bound for the US could take off yesterday, a mouse was spotted scampering across the floor, forcing the grounding of the plane with 250 passengers onboard. Several hours later the rodent had still evaded capture, despite many mouse traps being placed inside the aircraft. SAS is now considering smoking the mouse out, the worry being that it may start gnawing on the electronics.
Finding a replacement for the Airbus 330 aircraft, the biggest in the airline’s fleet, has been difficult. “This kind of incident has not happened to SAS before, but we are now aware that similar incidents have happened to other airlines,” a spokesperson said. A similar incident forced the cancellation of two Delta Airline flights between New York and London in November 2009.
