Bees Delay Flight At Pittsburgh International Airport

A beekeeper  had to be called into gather up a swarm of thousands of bees that delayed a Delta Air Lines flight from Pittsburgh International Airport to New York on Wednesday. The bees gathered on the wing of the plan as crews were getting ready to fuel the plane.

 Swarms of bees are actually nothing new at the airport. Last May, 25,000 to 30,000 landed on the Taxiway-C light. Such swarms form when colonies become too large and the queen leaves half of her bees behind to find a new home.
