“Hi” said the owl. “I just got back from the USA where I amassed 250 hours and I’m your new F/O”!

Owls supposedly bring good luck. I'd keep it onboard.

owls are damn fine pilots! And I'm pretty sure there aren't any rodents under the seats. :D

How did the owl get inside the plane especially the cockpit? They have a pretty wide wingspan. They really aren't known for walking..

Aircraft was probably being ground/cabin serviced overnight. In good weather, it is common to leave entry doors open. Owl flew in unnoticed, landing in "front office". just a guess.

Owl is from customs, checking on a possible vermin incursion.

Going by what 1 of the other posters asked, I'm glad no one actually asked the owl for a passport. Can you imagine the conversation that would have taken place...and gone on for hours?
Customs: "Do you have a current passport sir?"
Owl: "WHOO"
Customs: "You sir"
Owl: "WHOO"
You catch the drift

Feel-good story in more ways than one!
How pleasant to not hear the usual rants about third world airlines and their crews. Even from the usual suspects! Cheers!

This owl confirms that Jet Airways is "fly by night". And that's just a joke I thought of after reading your post. I have no idea what this airline is like.

A wise old owl sat on an oak,
The more he saw, the less he spoke,
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Why can't we be like that wise old bird?

Very sweet. Barn owls live inside structures. It isn't a far stretch to think he has a home in a hangar nearby.

Per e-mail question to FlightAware, owl was not destroyed. It was handed over to a wildlife group.

The owl just wanted to visit his relatives in Jolly ol' England, maybe for a pint or two.

From the looks of that engine and all the people standing around it in the second pic, that triple’s not going anywhere soon.

Maybe the bird misheard that they needed to look at the engine “owl” instead of “cowl.”

As much as I would like to read this article, it's complaining about my ad blocker. So I guess they are out of luck (and maybe I am also). If everybody ran an ad blocker, we'd quickly sort out the wheat from the chaff.

They released the bird, it was reported in the local media also. I don't think anyone will kill the bird for entering the plane.

oh ok.. and anyways.. they aren't just going to "kill" a owl for no big reason..
whip5209

That would have been a ridiculous thing to do. If they were worried about the owl being near the airport, they could release it some distance away.

Actually you would be surprised. I too, thot similarly in the past. but was pleasantly surprised by ethics of overseas sanctuaries.
