This is a video of someone doing a double-take when they spot a cat (whilst 200 feet above the ground):
Romain Jantot gives sight-seeing flights from his flying club in French Guyana, and has a flight-cam so that his passengers can remember events. This particular lady got a little more than she expected.
A handful of seconds after lifting off from the runway the video shows a rudely-awakened cat scrabbling inside the port wing towards the cabin. For a heart-rending second it looks like the cat is going to leap out, but then it remembers that it doesn’t have a parachute. That’s the moment that Romain does his double-take as he spots the cat.
Romain put the video up on YouTube (link at top). He entitled it “Remove cat before flight”.
