image for US Plane Crash Explained
Misunderstood Penguin

The mystery of how an American plane crashed in Libya has been solved.

The pilots, when interviewed, made it clear that a Penguin had appeared on the plane and had taken over the controls. However, with no knowledge of flight the Penguin could not manage.

The two pilots escaped just in time but the Penguin was unfortunately unable to put on his parachute in time. He was so squashed on arrival on Libyan soil that only remnants of his body remained.

Locals who came across the remains in the crashed plane thought the pilots had been eating their lunch.

It appears SeaWorld, an organistion active in the Arctic who organised vacations for Penguins had misunderstood their mission. The American pilots had requested Penguins on their flight so they could chew into their favourite chocolate bar during their trip to Libya. In a mix up, which will be throughly investigated by a Congressional Committee, a real Penguin was supplied and not the chocolate bar one.

This error was only discovered by the Pilots after they had taken off. When the Penguin wandered into view they concluded, reasonably enough, that a spell as a Pilot would give the Penguin a wider experience of life.

The rest, as we know, is history.
