Even Falcons Get to Fly on Commercial Aircraft
Have you ever flown with a pet? It can be a frustrating experience, not to mention expensive, but from time to time even four-legged and feathered friends need to go on vacation too.
This brings us around to the above photo, of two men traveling in economy class on a flight either to or from the middle east, who are enjoying a little in-flight entertainment, a little nap, and a little quality time with their falcons.
The image comes courtesy of @mrstrefusis on Twitter, who explains a bit further: "my friend who lives in the UAE sent it to me - I've asked him if it's something he saw himself or if he found it on t'interweb."
Now, next time we see a traveler trying to calm a yapping dog, we'll just be happy we're not sitting next to two birds of prey with very real claws and very real sharp beaks.
