    Pilot lands plane while playing with snake

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The much-talked-about movie "Snakes on a Plane" doesn't open until August. But Monty Coles doesn't have to see it. He's lived it.

    Three-thousand feet in the air on Saturday, he discovered a four-and-a-half-foot black snake peering out at him from the instrument panel of his Piper Cherokee.

    He'd already been preparing to land in southern Ohio after a flight from West Virginia.

    He tried to swat the snake. But it just fell to his feet under the rudder pedals and then darted to the other side of the cockpit.

    So, while flying the plane with one hand, Coles grabbed the snake behind its head with his other hand, even as it coiled around his arm.

    Next, he told the control tower he needed emergency landing clearance — and that he had "one hand full of snake and the other hand full of plane."

    He says he was cleared right in.

    Coles made a smooth landing, then posed for pictures with the snake, before letting it loose.

    Why even grab the snake? Your common black snakes here in West Virginia are not deadly unless your a mouse.

    the pilot was actually related to steve irwin, the crocodile hunter..

    and had an instinctual urge to put himself in more danger than necesary but grabbing the snake

    the plane was also filled 23 crocodiles..
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Maybe the pilot is a mouse. Did you ever think of that? Noooo! You're insensitive to the needs and rights of the Rodent-Americans! I'm calling the NAACP!

    :wink:

    Anywho...the Snakes on a Plane reference = killer.
    I'm sick of these mother f***in snakes on this mother f***in plane!

    Here's another good one...

    The snake felt at home in the cockpit.
