Hidden Camera Video Shows Mice On Airplane
It's the busy summer travel season and a lot of families have vacations planned. But before you fly, you should see the hidden camera video obtained by NewsChannel 5's I-Team.
The video was shot by a long-time employee at the overhaul base at Kansas City International Airport. The whistleblower did not want to be identified but did want to expose a hidden secret onboard a Boeing 767 passenger plane.
The whistle blower said, "We had to take the chairs off and that's when everybody saw mice running around on the floor and one ran down one of the mechanic's arm."
The whistle blower said workers found nests in air vents and dead mice in emergency oxygen masks. When mice would get hungry, they ate insulation and chewed through wires.

Chewed thru wires, now that's scary.
No wonder some of these black boxes have nothing recorded? How many are controlling hydraulic lines?
Or flight control systems?

Remind me not to fly American Airlines ever again. What kind of service are they offering to their passengers???

I could just imagine the commotion my mother would cause if she saw a mouse on a plane. Forget them chewing through wires, she'd bring the thing down herself!!

thats a good point. So many people have such a fear of mice.
This is so shocking though -- i hate to think how many severed wires it would take to bring down a plane -- but part of me thinks perhaps just one -- and im not even including electrical fires in that.
