Tiny Snake Grounds Big Plane

CANBERRA, Australia (September 23, 2013)—An 8-inch snake that was discovered on a Qantas Boeing 747 airliner grounded the plane and its 370 passengers overnight in Sydney.

Staffers found the tiny snake in the passenger cabin near the door before passengers boarded late Sunday at Sydney International Airport for a flight to Tokyo, the airline said.

The snake was taken by quarantine officials for analysis.
