PARIS -- Always check your plane for kittens before takeoff.
This video of an open-cockpit glider is going viral because of its surprise passenger.
Shortly after takeoff the pilot and his human passenger notice their new friend, a cat that was clinging for life to a wing.
YouTube user Romain Jantot wrote:
"A standard flight until... i still don't know if it got in after the pre flight check or if i missed it.
The cat is doing well, she is still our mascot."
The pilot turned around and landed. All three made it to the ground safely, the cat with all nine lives.
