Pilot Finds Snake Stowaway Inside Cockpit
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Monty Coles was 3,000 feet in the air when he discovered a stowaway peeking out at him from the plane's instrument panel: a 4 1/2-foot snake. "Nothing in any of the manuals ever described anything like this," said the 62-year-old Cross Lanes resident.
But advice given 25 years earlier from his flight instructor sprung to mind: "No matter what happens, fly the plane."
Deep in a mine in Southern Chihuahua Mexico, there is a cave with magnificent, gigantic crystals called the Crystal Cave of Giants. Pictures here.
