AN FBI agent rescued passengers in Hollywood’s Snakes on a Plane, but it was a baggage handler who saved the day when a crocodile escaped on a Qantas flight.

The croc broke free from its cage and roamed the plane’s cargo hold during the flight from Brisbane to Melbourne until unsuspecting baggage handlers discovered the reptile when unloading the luggage upon landing.

A Qantas spokesman said the crocodile measured about 60 centimetres in length and was caught without incident.

An investigation is underway into how the crocodile escaped on the flight last Monday.

“The animal was quickly and safely secured when the aircraft arrived in Melbourne,” the spokesman said in a statement.

“The investigation is focusing on whether it had been loaded appropriately on delivery to Australian air Express.” – AAP
