An Air Canada flight was delayed for several hours last night when a cat called Ripples found his way into the cockpit.
The Toronto bound flight was due to take off from Halifax at 5.30pm local time but was forced to remain on the ground as Ripples made his great escape.
Passenger Kyle Warkentin said the cat's owner, who was very upset, called out for Ripples while members of the cabin crew scoured the plane for the cheeky feline.
Mr Warketin told CBC News that it looked as though parts of the cockpit were taken apart during the hunt for ripples.
The cat was eventually found, but the flight faced further delays as wiring in the cockpit had to be checked for damage.
The flight finally took off at 10am local time.
