Thousands of bees seen swarming over Indonesia airplane's wing
The phenomenon was caught on film and uploaded to Instagram last Friday afternoon, showing what looks like thousands of bees swarming over a Citilink Indonesia airplane's right wing.
NORTH SUMATRA, INDONESIA — A Citilink Indonesia plane reportedly landed at around 11:40 a.m. and was heading toward its parking spot when passengers noticed their vessel was surrounded by a swarm of bees.
The bee swarm formed a thick black cloud and clung to the plane's wing as they created a nest.
According to Citilink's vice president, the bees were later removed from the aircraft when water was sprayed onto the wing with a fire hose.
The removal process only caused a 90-minute delay.
The vice president theorized that what logging practices that have disrupted the bees natural habitat may have forced them to look for a new home.
