Winged animal flies around Delta plane cabin

August 8, 2011

One of the passengers says he fell asleep during the early Friday morning flight only to be woken up by a scream. Mike Schmidt says he then saw the thing go flying by.

It flew around the cabin, before it was finally trapped in the plane's back lavatory.

The airline says they searched the plane and couldn't find the animal, so it's not sure if it was a bird or a bat.
