"Look, you're not going to believe this. I've got snakes on a plane."
Indeed, it was not a belated April Fool's Day joke. The Air Frontier flight from Warren to the small town of Peppimenarti was put on hold to make an emergency landing, due to a snake suddenly appearing in the cockpit. Blennerhassett was particularly spooked when the snake crawled up his leg while landing: "My blood pressure and heart rate was a bit elevated — it was an interesting experience," he told Nine News.
If that wasn't odd enough, those inspecting the plane after its landing found a green tree frog as well. They deduced that the snake had been hunting the amphibian and--thankfully--the snake was non-venomous.
And if THAT wasn't odd, or even disturbing enough, Air Frontier's director Geoffrey Hunt told ABC News, "I have heard of crocodiles being loose in planes, but not snakes."
