Dokha, 28 Feb – RIA Novosti. The plane from Sudan to the capital of Qatar, Doha, was forced to return due to the unexpected appearance of a cat in the cockpit, the Sudanese newspaper Al-Sudani reported on Sunday, citing a source among the crew members.
The publication wrote that the Sudanese airline Tarco flew from the Sudanese capital Khartoum to Qatar, and half an hour after the start of the flight, a cat suddenly appeared in the cockpit.
According to the interlocutor of the newspaper, the cat interfered with the control of the plane and tried to attack the captain, which is why he decided to return to the airport of departure in Khartoum.
