It’s true, bees were put into a cardboard box, taken aboard a Russian Plane, which it seems is illegal, but it seems only illegal for some and not others, Ah the sins of a VIP. As the plane took off, and the cabin began to pressurize the bees didn’t seem to like this very much at all, and they started to get agitated. Next thing the passengers knew there was bees buzzing around the plane, they managed to contain the bees in a businesses class wardrobe, until they landed which was 10 hours later. Apparently no passagers were stung. I mean it must have been awful but you can’t help but laugh, it surely was better than Snakes on a Plane.
There is an article about this in The Moscow Times.
