Hyper swan creates complete havoc on Heathrow runway

Run wild, run free.

THIS SWAN IS all of us after a few too many fizzy sherbets. The feathery runaway delayed over 20 aircraft on the Heathrow runway when he decided to have a little game of chase with the airport’s staff.

The video was posted by spectator Dantorp Aviation who notes that the runway in question sees “approximately 30-45 departures per hour”.

London Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport (operating at a staggering 99,8% capacity and ~ 1300 movements per day), cannot afford even the slightest delay or malfunction in its hectic, heavily trafficked schedule.

Did this bother our little friend? No, not at all.

Watch the full saga unfold.
